"Mesa Verde, Spanish for 'green table', rises high above the surrounding country. For about 1,300 years, agrarian Indians occupied the mesa and surrounding regions. From the hundreds of dwellings that remain, archeologists have compiled one of the most significant chapters in the story of prehistoric America." - back of the postcard I bought.
It was an all day excursion and we only saw a piece of the park. There is a hotel and a couple of restaurants at the park and now I understand why. I would love to spend the weekend there and take it all in, maybe some day.
Next up in the racing scene is the Boise criterium, then on to Bend, OR for Cascade Cycling Classic. I love Cascade, it is such a great race and a great time of the year and Bend is a cool town!
