Cliff Palace, Mesa Verde National Park, Colorado

Something Good for the soul could be standing in a Palace that was built in Mesa Verde. Mesa Verde truly hosts some of the most amazing Pueblo Architecture that pre-dates colonial America. These are the best preserved sites anywhere and are protected to maintain them intact.

 Circa 600 to 1300 A.D.

“Mesa Verde, Spanish for green table, offers a spectacular look into the lives of the Ancestral Pueblo people who made it their home for over 700 years, from A.D. 600 to A.D. 1300. Today, the park protects over 4,000 known archeological sites, including 600 cliff dwellings. These sites are some of the most notable and best preserved in the United States.” http://www.nps.gov/meve/

I think this site would truly be worth a visit and it is open for guided tours.

    Oh, I love that you have Mesa Verde listed under “America’s Castles”! 🙂 🙂

    I live near the Mogollon cliff dwellings. When I go there I can spend hours just sitting there and feeling the mood of the place and sensing who used to live there. It’s a very emotional experience.

    I agree with you anajo. This is one of the most emotional journeys a human can take…

    You are so lucky to live near by. I could sleep on the ground and hear the vabriations as there are many lessons to learn.

    It is just a fortresss for housing and protection and what is so amazing about this site the u.s. does protect this better than any site in the world.

    With guards, tours, and etc…

    What is so amazing about this. Either native american background, mixed, or immigrant this is still your history.

    I love the concept of the ladders climbing the cliff… WOW..

    What a society.
