Mesa Verde National Park offers an intimate look into the lives of the Ancestral Pueblo people who made it their home from about A.D. 600 to A.D. 1300. The park protects over 4,700 known archeological sites, including about 600 cliff dwellings. These sites include towers, Kivas, mesa top pueblos, farming terraces, reservoirs, and check dams. These ruins are some of the most interesting and best preserved sites in the world.
Mesa Verde is Spanish for "green table," and was so named because the park lies on a vast green tableland or mesa. The mesa rises around 2,300 feet above the surrounding Great Sage Plain to total elevations over 8000 feet high.
One of our first stops in the park is the Visitor Center. On Chapin Mesa you will usually visit the most famous cliff dwellings in the park, including Cliff Palace, Balcony House, and Spruce Tree House. Other options include Square Tower House, Cedar Tree Tower and Kiva, Sun Temple, the Far View Site Complex, and a park Museum along with many other view points.
On Wetherill Mesa the major sites include Long House, Badger House Community,Two Raven House, and Kodak House Overlook
