Mesa Verde, Native American’s high rises

My family and I went on a trip to Southern Utah last week.  On the way back, we went to Mesa Verde in southern Colorado.  It was amazing.  It has an incredible collection of the ruins of the Pueblo and Anasazi Indians from about 600 A.D. to 1200 A.D.  There were various stages of development of houses in the same areas, sometimes built right in the crevices of a cliff.  Can you imagine going out for food and water and having to carry it all back up the cliff?  I was really impressed with their ingenuity and resourcefulness.  The Native Americans have a rich heritage and I would love to experience more of it.  It would have been cool to have been a fly on the wall and to see exactly how they lived.  Someday, I want to go on the tour of the bigger buildings that we could only see from a distance on this trip.  Very cool place, though.
