This summer has been full of new experiences, learning and connecting through travel.
Exploring these ancient cliff dwellings has always been on my bucket list.
The Mr’s family booked their annual family reunion in Durango, Colorado this year and on the itinerary was Mesa Verde.
Believe me when I say, the experience was F-A-S-C-I-N-A-T-I-N-G.
We drove to several outlook spots above the cliffs. Someone had to point out the dwellings across the ravine for us to actually see them.
When you get closer they open up in to a little village carved from the stone cliffs.
We started the Balcony House tour by climbing a steep 32 foot ladder.
From there we toured a cliff dwelling.
A series of several ladders…
and several tight squeezes later…
and we made it out all in one piece.
We also explored Cliff Palace which took our breath away.
