Mesa Verde is a prime example of a National Park being established to protect our heritage, instead of providing a recreational area.
With 600 cliff dwellings and over 5,000 total archeological sites, it is the single largest archeological preserve in the United States.
We were lucky enough to tour the Cliff Palace, thought to be the largest cliff dwelling in North America. We were also lucky to get a Native American guide, Rising Buffalo, to lead our tour. He really put perspective to life in the time of the Ancient Puebloans, and caused us all reflect on our relationship with the earth.
