Whereas most national parks are primarily devoted to showcasing unique and special landscapes, Mesa Verde National Park focuses on ancient human habitation.
Venture out of the city with trips to Cortez (Hovenweep National Monument, Notah Dineh Trading Company and Museum, &more), Four Corners Monument (in Teec Nos Pos) and The Anasazi Heritage Center (in Dolores). There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of Balcony House, admire the majestic nature at Bisti/De-Na-Zin Wilderness, trek along Petroglyph Point Hike, and explore the striking landscape of Mesa Verde National Park.

To find maps, where to stay, photos, and other tourist information, you can read our Mesa Verde National Park trip itinerary builder.

Expect a daytime high around 26°C in May, and nighttime lows around 3°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 16th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
