Mesa Verde

We toured the Spruce Tree House cliff dwellings. They are about 200 feet x 90 feet and it is estimated that about 100 people lived in them year round. The park has done a little stabilization, but more than 90% of the walls etc. are original (from about 1200 A.D.). Most of the cliff dwellings are closed in the winter.
