Mesa Verde National Park

Mesa Verde , CO
United States

The deep canyons and sprawling mesas that define Mesa Verde National Park are home to over a thousand species of plants and animals, including several that live nowhere else on earth. For over 700 years, the Ancestral Pueblo people built thriving communities on the mesas and in the cliffs. Today, the park protects the rich cultural heritage of 26 tribes and offers visitors a spectacular window into the past.
