Mesa Verde NP

Today was the first day that we spent the whole day at one place. I had originally planned to go to Hovenweep National Monument on the way to Blanding, but we stayed at Mesa Verde for a bit too long. Plus the weather was poor – it started raining here and there and we thought it’d be best just to hang out in Mesa Verde and explore the park some more until about 5:30pm.

We stopped at all of the road stops, and we decided to not do a ranger tour (one hour long tour of either Cliff Palace or Balcony House). And the road to Wildhorse Mesa was closed (it closed on Labor Day). The weather did not really cooperate. It went from overcast to rainy. And we did hear one deep rumble of thunder in the distance. The rain wasn’t so bad. It was cold and refreshing.
