Mesa Verde

Finally the time was up and it was time to go home.  On the way I wanted to visit Mesa Verde and Aztec Ruins near Farmington.  It was mostly personal development, though I did try to meet the Artist in Residence co-ordinator.  Hadn't been to Mesa Verde in a while.  Spent a day there and camped.  No serious photography, just toured the museum and Balcony House and Cliff Palace.  Every time you go its a little more controlled for the tourists.  Beautiful spot and informative museum.  Woke up in the 4-runner the next morning and it was 48 degrees.  I drove down to see Aztec and took most of the tour.  Area to the North was closed due to a bear and cubs sighting.

Balcony House tourists.

Finally pointed the 4-runner toward Smith County and punched "go home" on the Garmin.
