Day 6... Last night we got in to durango tried to camp but got shut out. note to self don't try to find a camp site late on a saturday night. We got a hotel room that was closer to luxury camping than a hotel but it had a shower, which i cleaned and i used my shower shoes! But all kidding aside it was a good nights sleep. We got up early and went to mesa verde to See the cliff dwellings of the ancient puebloians. The park has over 600 cliff dwellings and ruins throughout. The history of these ancient people is still largely a mystery which adds to its mystique. It was so amazing i know i keep saying it but it was epic to see thunder storms over the san juan mountains while your dry 30 miles away watching the sunset. Our plan is to camp here tonight and go utah and arizona to see monument valley.
