Pulled in to Cortez, Colorado Today - Apr 9, 2014
After a great week in Moab, Utah we headed for Colorado and arrived in Cortez this morning. After we got the RV set up at La Mesa RV Park, we headed for Mesa Verde National Park. It's only about 10 miles from Cortez. After stopping by the Visitor Center, we drove up to the Mesa to see the ancient Cliff Dwellings of the Anasazi Indian people. These dwellings were built around 1200 AD. Who knew that we had buildings dated back that far. I thought only other countries had this kind of history. It really is amazing that some of these structures are still standing. They were a quite advanced culture for the time period. Here are a few photos of some of the structures.
