The Spruce Tree House was a truly outstanding sight. Great view. But then, most everything we saw in the Mesa Verde National Park was outstanding as well. Take a day and tour the entire park. You will not regret it.

It was wonderful and amazing to see my husband see something that he had hundreds of students study. The looks on his face was something I’ll never forget. This place is simply amazing and beautiful. Looking forward to coming back.

Another example of the dwellings people lived in so many years ago. This is one of several focal points of Mesa Verde National Park.

Due to stabilization concerns one can only view this now. It used to be a walk though place that was self guided with a ranger to answer questions. Still worth the view & right by the Museum, so convenient!! Beautiful!!
