One of the crown jewels of Southwest Colorado is seeing the Pueblo dwellings at Mesa Verde National Park. We had no idea that the park was so mountainous! Definitely the most challenging driving David has done yet in the RV. Well worth it, though, even with the downside that we could not actually tour the dwellings because of Covid. Guess it’s something to come back for and do with our kids someday! We drove the whole park over a couple of days and got to see all the dwellings from afar. It’s really amazing how the Anasazi people built these cities here and survived for a long time. There were a few short hikes we took to look out points viewing the canyon and some of the dwellings.
We stayed in Durango for just one night on our way back to Denver to catch a flight. We hope to stay longer next time as we didn’t get too much time to explore. Steamworks Brewing was a fun stop for dinner and beers.
