The other thing we wanted to see was Mesa Verde National Park.
All I could say on the drive through the park is "its so green". We've been seeing so many rocks, this was a pleasant change.
I don't have any really good pictures of the drive because we took the truck this time... so I was looking through a bug splattered windshield!
At Mesa Verde NP you can view discovered Ancients Pueblos built into the rock... "Cliff Dwellings". We have seen these at several other places in New Mexico, Arizona and Colorado.
It was another fun get-away for us, and we were happy to be back in our own home. We don't have much more space than the motel room... but it is our home!
At the time of my last post, we had just visited Dead Horse State Park and Canyonlands National Park... but I hadn't yet posted on it. The 2 parks are in the same area out of Moab, so it was one trip.
As usual, the ride was awesome...
...and the views incredible
Some fun roads... but not for the Harley...
Did I mention... Incredible Views?
|I found some shade!|
Another day we decided to check out some back roads in the truck.
It would be more fun in a RZR or Jeep, but we don't have one.
So we settled for our 4x4... just had to be more careful... it tows our house!
We found a Creek!
Even tried making it a water park... but that didn't work too well!
What will we do?? It's too hot to do much of anything outside past 10am, but I don't want to spend 4 days locked inside our trailer with the windows all boarded up either.
Actually, we are looking for somewhere else to go. Haven't found anything yet, but we wont be here much longer. We need water!!
