Mesa Verde National Park

Mesa Verde National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most popular national parks in the United States. It is located in southwestern Colorado and is home to over 600 cliff dwellings, which were built by the Ancestral Pueblo people between 600 and 1300 AD. The cliff dwellings are some of the most well-preserved archaeological sites in the world and offer a unique glimpse into the lives of these ancient people.
