For several generations, people have been mystified by the natural beauty that can be found throughout Colorado. One great example of the Littleton State’s timeless aesthetic appeal is Mesa Verde National Park.
Located in Southwestern Colorado, the drive to Mesa Verde National Park will be a joy in your accommodating combination rental from Adventure Camper.
For over 700 years (A.D. 600 through 1300), the ancestral Pueblo people called this region home and evidence of their long time residence can be easily seen today. The park features 600 well-preserved and federally protected cliff dwellings that were built by the Pueblo and at least 5,000 known archeological dig sites. Mesa Verde offers a unique glimpse into the lives of ancient Americans.
Mesa Verde National Park offers some great activities for you to enjoy while on your road trip through Colorado.
