Mesa Verde National Park

Here is the site for Mesa Verde

Montezuma Valley Overlook on the drive up to the dwellings.

 Cliff dwelling ruins

 Cliff Palace - the largest cliff dwelling at Mesa Verde

Spruce Tree House - this is the dwelling we chose to see up close (the pictures above are obviously from afar - Spruce Tree we walked up to it and got a closer view).

Far view of Spruce Tree House

 Joel next to tower at Spruce Tree House

 Kiva - used for religious ceremonies.  When occupied, this area would have had a roof.

Square Tower House - also viewed from afar.
