Today was a fun and interesting excursion to Mesa Verde N.P. except that there is a major forest fire burning about 60 miles southeast of the park and the wind decided to blow smoke our direction. Light but certainly agitating! One of the beautiful characteristics of Mesa Verde is the altitude of the mesa at 8,500 feet. On a clear day you can see for miles, and today wasn’t a clear day. Maybe we will go back up there in the next week if the air quality changes.
