Tuesday, Oct 16, 2018 (Colorado) Mesa Verde National Park (Morefield Campground)

We had booked a Private Tour with Durango Rivertrippers and Adventure Tours, and arranged to be picked up at our campsite. Our guide Denise, who had worked many years as an archaeologist, was fabulous! We started at the Mesa Verde Park Point Lookout—the highest point in the park—which afforded sweeping views in every direction. And Denise took us through a 360-degree ‘tour’ explaining what we were looking at in every direction. We could see the Carrizo Mountains in Arizona, Shiprock in New Mexico, Canyonlands in Utah, and of course many mountain peaks in Colorado.
