Mesa Verde National Park General: 40 reviews and 52 photos


Fondest memory: This 'dwelling' must have been the equivalent to a modern town! They got their water from down in the valley which made it a bit strenuous to be a housewife. But then again, they would also just sweep the trash down into the canyon. Nowadays, archaeologists dig through the remains to determine how they lived.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
