Mesa Verde Colorado

Spent the day in Mesa Verde National Park visiting the ruins on the Pueblo cliff dwellers. A-mazing landscape and architecture. I was like a little kids asking why and how every minute. In awe of the intelligence and inventiveness we are born with. They are a perfect example of living as one with their surroundings, working as a collaborative partner, integrating into even the cliff sides. They were farmers, builders, architects, weavers, potters…amazing graphic artists. They worked as a community collaboratively. …and they were short. I’ll write more later. Enjoy the photos.
