Whereas most national parks are primarily devoted to showcasing unique and special landscapes, Mesa Verde National Park focuses on ancient human habitation.
You've now added Mesa Verde Tour Experience to your itinerary. Venture out of the city with trips to The Anasazi Heritage Center (in Dolores), Cortez (Cortez Cultural Center & Hovenweep National Monument) and Balloon Rides (in Albuquerque). Next up on the itinerary: steep yourself in history at Cliff Palace, delve into the distant past at Spruce Tree House, take in the dramatic natural features at Valley of the Gods, and explore and take pictures at Petroglyph Point Hike.

For where to stay, maps, other places to visit, and more tourist information, go to the Mesa Verde National Park trip planner.

In September, plan for daily highs up to 80°F, and evening lows to 45°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 22nd (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
