Whereas most national parks are primarily devoted to showcasing unique and special landscapes, Mesa Verde National Park focuses on ancient human habitation.
Visiting Hovenweep National Monument and Petroglyph Point Hike will get you outdoors. Do some cultural sightseeing at Spruce Tree House and Cliff Palace. Venture out of the city with trips to Bisti/De-Na-Zin Wilderness (in Farmington), Cortez (Canyons of the Ancients National Monument & Notah Dineh Trading Company and Museum) and The Anasazi Heritage Center (in Dolores). There's much more to do: explore the striking landscape of Mesa Verde National Park, take in the dramatic natural features at Square Tower House, contemplate the long history of Balcony House, and stroll through Nordenskiold #16 Trail.

March in Mesa Verde National Park sees daily highs of °F and lows of °F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
