Mesa Verde

A Big Green Table

Verde means green, mesa means table.
A mesa of course is also flat-top elevation of land.

Mesa Verde near Cortez, CO is full of old Indian ruins. We took these photos last year before the fires during the summer of 2000, so I don't know what it looks like now compared to this. That's my wife and travel companion Lucy in the photo to the right above. | four corners page | galleries page
