Our last stop of our desert road trip was to visit the cliff dwellings of Mesa Verde, in southwest Colorado. We toured the Cliff Palace – the largest cliff dwelling there, with more than 150 rooms. The cliff dwellings were built around the year 1200 A.D. by the Ancestral Puebloans, who farmed on the mesa above the dwellings.

    Kudos, Jack. Claudia has seen more of the USA than I have in 70 years. I envy her and you, particuarly those hikes you both have done in the San Juans. However, your photos take me there vicariously

    Jack – I love the lighting in “Cliff Palace Sunset”. Mind if I ask what kind of lens was used for that shot?
