Bucket List: Mesa Verde, CO
One of the many things I wanted to see in CO while we’re here is Mesa Verde and the ruins of the native americans that lived there. It was quite a site to behold, and I was super impressed that we were allowed to explore and walk right through ruins that are centuries old! We walked of the beaten path and found pottery and other artifacts that had yet to be excavated and recovered, which made the journey even more incredible and surreal. Seeing the handprints and adobe workings that were so ancient makes you feel so small in the chain of life / existence.. It’s like when you stare at the stars and think of how infinite the universe is and how small we are in comparison.
So if you’re ever in Colorado, or looking to make your own list of things to do in Colorado, add Mesa Verde to the list. Also, if you’re coming from the Northeast (denver area) make a pit-stop to the Alligator Farm in Alamosa and hold a gator and feed the emus. It’s definitely a unique experience!
