Mesa Verde NP

A quick trip to MVNP. Beautiful spring day and light on the crowds. Boyz worked hard on their Jr. Ranger Badges.


Well preserved Kiva


One of the few ruins open for a close encounter.





Jeremie was pretty much done with the whole hiking thing by this point. Why is it taking so long? A promise was made for no more hikes for the rest of the trip! Good thing we were on to swimming pools and trains!


Petroglyph Point. Migration from Grand Canyon and branches of the major tribes that settled along the way.


Handsome Duo



Skippity Du Da






A few parting shots before we headed back with some tired boys. All the hiking in the last few days had officially worn them out. Alemayehu fell asleep while driving back to the hotel, slept through a load of laundry and finally we had to wake him up for dinner!
