Mesa Verde - Cliff Palace

when we started the vacation, our plan was to spend one day at Mesa Verde, touring the dwellings, hiking & taking photography of all the cliff-top scenery.  but this place is spectacular and we had to stay an extra day.
Cliff Palace is the largest cliff dwelling in North America & was built as early as 1190

Ranger-guided hikes are the only way to get down into the best parts;
so make the appointments, spend the extra $5/person and go on the one hour tours.
They're awesome. 

the place is jaw dropping

I’m Danielle. I’m a mom, I’m 40. My legs are short and I’m out of shape lol but I like to go all the places and do all the things. haha I’m pretty enthusiastic about being out in nature. I live in Moab, Utah - USA, with my 1 husband, 2 kids, 2 dogs and more cats than I am woman enough to admit in public. We love to be outside, hiking, exploring, chasing sunshine and doing the learning, when possible. My family is my entire world wrapped up in four awesome humans and way too many rescue fur babies .. these are our adventures.
