Well my fourth year at Mesa Verde is just about in the books so to speak. There is just something about this area of the USA that keeps calling me back. My summer was largely outside the Park exploring various places .... some for the first time and other favorites for a repeat visit. The big difference was I was able to find a friend to share these experiences with .... that was HUGE. It is so much better than doing everything alone. But in four years this was the only year I could find a person willing to "hang out" for the summer .... it's not a real easy thing to do if you're married and over 60 :) At any rate it worked out great and I think we both had a fantastic summer exploring places together. Here's just a brief list of a few of the many places we went .... Telluride, Camping on the San Miguel River, Off Roading in Moab, Camping in Canyonlands, Camping in Chaco Canyon, exploring the LaPlata Mountains, Rafting the Animas River, Hiking in the Weminuche Wilderness....and many more adventures. My friend has returned home now, so I'm back to being by myself for a few weeks until my season ends and I join my wife for some long awaited together time. Next summer I have my sights on Maine and Acadia National Park .... hopefully it works out for me. Stay tuned.
