Mesa Verde National Park. Elderhostel “Photography in the Southwest” Day 0.

While traveling from Boulder Colorado to Kelly Place just outside of Cortez Colorado to meet up with my father (Loren) and brother (Erik) to attend the Elderhostel “Photography in the Southwest” workshop, I stopped at Mesa Verde National Park. I knew that we would be back here during the workshop. The following four images were taken during an afternoon visit.
