  1. Looking at these pictures reminds me of how much I miss the Four Corners. Can’t wait to see the final bunch.


      1. The indigenous history behind the area as well as the climate & the beauty of the locations. You have the desert & the mountains existing in those states to accommodate many activities.


      2. That’s clear now, Susan. As it happens, after I had asked you that question Monika also put forward the reasons why she loves the Four Corners. It seems a magical place!


    1. Oh, Monika, that’s beautiful, and to think we were so close, relatively speaking. We would have loved to have visited the location. Wonder if there’s anything online to watch? Also wondering if we would also get to visit it.

      1. From the NPS website (https://www.nps.gov/meve/planyourvisit/conditions.htm), here’s a bit of the skinny on it:
        “These Areas Remain Closed Until Further Notice
        Mesa Verde Research & Visitor Center
        Chapin Mesa Archeological Museum
        All cliff dwellings and ranger-guided cliff dwelling tours. This includes continued closures of Cliff Palace, Balcony House, Long House, and Step House.
        Wetherill Mesa Road
        Hiking Trail update: These hiking trails have been temporarily closed due to extreme fire danger: ♦Point Lookout Trail, ♦Prater Ridge Trail, ♦Knife Edge Trail, ♦Lower Petroglyph Point Trail (upper section remains open), ♦Spruce Canyon Trail, ♦Farming Terrace Trail, ♦Wetherill Mesa Road, sites, and trails. (Please see our hiking page for details.)
        Spruce Tree Terrace Cafe and Gift Shop (for details, please visit http://www.visitmesaverde.com)”
        Without being able to go on tour or see the Cliff Palace among the others, it really isn’t worth the drive until they are reopened.
