Elderhostel “Photography in the Southwest” Workshop Day 0. Mesa Verde National Park.
I wasn’t sure that I would be able to make the trip from Boulder to southwestern Colorado because of a winter storm that passed through during the previous days. The roads were clear, and there were not many vehicles on the road. I made it to Mesa Verde National Park in time to meet my father and brother before attending an Elderhostel/Road Scholar photography workshop. It was still snowing when I arrived at the National Park.
