Mesa Verde

It was Monday, the 23rd of October.  It included the drive from Lake Powell to Durango, which includes Four Corners and Mesa Verde National Park.  Today we saw rain, snow and hail, but we had fun in spite of the inclement weather.

Jun and Jacob at Four Corner.  This is the only spot in the nation, where four states meet in one location.

The states include Utah, Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona.

It was a hard rain. 


We finally made it to Mesa Verde.  This was the first hail encountered on the trip!  It was hailing so hard that the two pictures below were both shoot through the windshield of the motorhome.


Jacob's introduction to the Mesa Verde "Cliff Palace" Indian dwelling.
Enjoyed a Park Ranger's lecture in the rain.  Luckily, we where under a overhang.

Jacob stayed very focused during the lecture.
