This National Park is a World Heritage Site located in Colorado by Cortez. We enjoyed visiting this well preserved ancestral puebloan archeological sites. We explore the National Park and do the Cliff Palace Balcony House and tour. The later was quite scary with the kids climbing up a 32 foot latter to get up to the palace cliff! What an adventure! It is quite impressive seeing this evidence of how room and passageway construction in the alcove evolved through time. We enjoy watching some indigenous dances at the cultural center in Cortez. We extend our stay here. Mara and Elin enjoy their surprise – a horseback ride in this beautiful Colorado back country. It is amazing to see this diverse landscape (it changes dramatically after a 30 min ride out of Cortez). We enjoy the trees and water surrounded area.
