i had dreamt for a very very long time to see mesa verde..and i'm very happy i made it; it was a good trip combining not only archaeolgy but hiking and climbing; mountains are really beatiful and there are some amazing views from the park towards cortez and montezuma valley

    Not been to Mesa Verde, but to a few places in NM and AZ with ancient ruines. Not quite like these though.

    We thought Mesa Verde was fantastic too. Would have liked to have done some more exploring, but were on an organized tour Bus

    Great page with good tips and photos. Have you seen Montezuma Castle National Monument or the Kinishba Ruins in Arizona?

    Some interesting tips & a great sunset photo. You've helped to confirm my belief that this is somewhere I'd love to visit. Shame about the rangers though - I've found them quite good in other US parks

    An interesting view of one of the Big Parks on the Golden Circle. It always helps to know more than the rangers :-]
