Winter in Colorado: Mesa Verde National Park.

On the way from Boulder, Colorado to Kelly Place a B&B just outside of Cortez, Colorado I stopped for a few hours at Mesa Verde National Park. While at Mesa Verde, I met up with my father (Loren) and brother (Erik). We would be spending the next three days attending the Elderhostel/Road Scholar “Photography in the Southwest” workshop.
