Long House cliff dwelling in Mesa Verde National Park is one of many amazing archaeological treasures that can be viewed and appreciated by the public.  But this national park is not the only park filled with artifacts created and left by the original inhabitants.  Artifacts may be found along the Natchez Trace Parkway - those that haven’t been taken away, that is.  An article in today’s edition of the National Parks Traveler details a story about a company that surveyed the Parkway for archaeological artifacts in advance of a tree-planting project and that is now being charged with taking some of those artifacts.

Canyons and vistas too numerous to post so here are a few favorites. Mesa Verde National Park and Monument Valley.
Colorado treated me well! 😁🀘🏻

Mesa Verde National Park is a magical, exhilarating, peaceful and powerful place. Seriously, all at once. I learned so much about the people and the lands today and the biggest takeaways are respect and the acknowledgment of their resiliency. Before coming here I thought it such a novelty that someone would choose to live in such a manner. Now I totally get it. There is a connection with the earth that is real and beautiful. Thank you to the awesome tour guides and staff- you have all been so gracious and have made it all come alive! #mesaverde #mesaverdenationalpark #sunsethouse #cliffhouse #balconyhouse Yes- that is me in the distance climbing the ladder! #squaretowerhouse #nationalpark #nationalparkgeek #sensoryexperience #roadtrip #kellytakesthesouthwest

Another location to cross off my bucket list: Cliff Palace in Mesa Verde National Park. I've wanted to see this piece of architecture since doing lesson plans on it for my Masters degree. Unfortunately the tours do not start until May, but it was still cool to see personally. This is the home of the earliest Americans, the Pueblo Indians. Who dwelled there around 1200 A.D. They built their houses along the cliff sides to protect themselves from harsh winter winds. Hard to believe they carved their houses out of the Limestone in the rock with nothing but primitive hand-tools. Fascinating people!
Right down the road...
