Mesa Verde

So, excited! Road trip to Mesa Verde!

Melissa, taking a self portrait. So nice!

Gotta have the fruit!

Fruit for the road, apple for Ally, orange for Melissa and banana for Megan.

Mesa Verde next exit! Only 45 minutes from Durango. We had to check it out.

Melissa and Ally at the entrance

Melissa and her good friend Megan from Oklahoma

A lot of Mesa Verde has been burned by natural forest fires in the last 20 years.

Stuck behind the slow pokes...Geeze.

Melissa, the photographer


So pretty looking out at Mancos.

Oh, we better be careful.

Super cool ruins from 1300 AD, right before the Pueblo Indians left.

Cliff Palace, you had to be a really awesome rock climber to live here!


The gals being tourists

A lot of the trails were closed because of all the snow they received this winter, so we road around and did all the short hikes to the cliff dwellings.













Lunch break!

Mmmm...yummy
Checking out the Juniper Berries, getting the seeds inside.



Oh, so sad...dead, burned, charred...


Posing in the dead forest

Trying to look tough


It was crazy how much of the park was burned.

Pearl, my beautiful Subaru with the burned trees

Smiling after a wonderful park ranger told us all about the Pueblo Indians.

Looking down into the kiva

Melissa chillin' at the ruins

Knock them down from the hollow stumps before they stand up
or they will tear down your O's. Consider creating pens to herd pigs and cows
together so that you can create tasty meat out of them later.
So, if the gameplay itself is identical to that of Lies,
then why would you want to start over and play Elemental Kingdoms.
