Pictures: If ruins are your thing you need to visit Mesa Verde, even if they are not, it is still a great place to visit. We stay maybe 3 or 4 hours and it was not even a good start to seeing all there is to see. I would recommend that you cut out 2 or 3 days to see this place if you are into ruins and even if you are not I would at least give it a full day.
Here are my first two pictures of SPRUCE TREE HOUSE, which is one of the sites in Mesa Verde and only one of the many cliff ruins.
Weather: The temperature are just the best if you ask me 80° days and 55° nights, prefect 🙂 We do keep getting a lot of rain not great for doing stuff but it is so much needed here in NM that I will write it down as a good thing.
Update; It is about noon and here comes the rain. It has been pretty persistent over the last couple of weeks.
Second rain about 5pm.
