We travelled from Durango to Mesa Verde Park. Along the way we actually saw a sign that said Caution Cattle Drive in Progress. Sure enough a few miles along we passed an actual cattle drive complete with cows, horses, dogs and cowboys. It seemed to be a family driving the herd and the cutest thing was this little kid, no more than about five, sitting on a big horse helping. He even had a cowboy hat on.
Mesa Verde Park is amazing. It is an archeological heritage site of the Ancestral Puebloans and has over 600 cliff dwellings. Today we went about half way into the park and stopped at all the view points and toured one mesa-top farming community with the remains of five villages and a reservoir. Pretty interesting to see how they built things way back then.
