Mesa Verde. You can read all about it in Wikipedia, so I’m not going to repeat the obvious. It’s fascinating and really, really strange. First of all, it’s a rather long drive until you’ve reached the area where all the action is. There is, of course, a visitor center and you can book a ranger guided tour. So we booked the tour that promised the most excitement in terms of climbing and crawling. But I guess it’s all tailored to fat people. There was more safety talk and good advice than steps on the ladder … . Nevermind, still worth it and I even got to play deputy ranger, yee-ha motherfucker.
I discovered another artifact – no, not Rommel, but Wooster!!! Much more friendly anyway.
So we did a couple of hours of hiking and that’s really nice, along the side of the cliffs and all, hot and sunny, nice desert flowers, interesting colours …
… and lizards. I LOVE LIZARDS! Nature Red in Tooth and Claw:
