Photos of the Cliff Palace, Mesa Verde National Park, Colorado > Travelogues > USA > Colorado > Mesa Verde National Park > Cliff palace

These photos are from a visit to Cliff Palace at the Mesa Verde National Park. To go down into the palace you need to go with a park ranger led tour. I think it is well worth it. I arrived at the park late in the afternoon and was told no more tours were available at the gate and the visitors center was closed, but my guidebook also said Cliff Palace evening tours tickets were available from the museum. I went there and got tickets. Once again a good travel guide book proves to be a great value.

Photos from a 2 week vist to Utah, Colorado and Arizona in September to October. During the trip I visited Salt Lake City, Utah; Antelope Island, Great Salt Lake; Mount Timpanogos; Dinosaur National Monument and Mesa Verde.
