Mesa Verde National Park is located in the lower
south-western corner of Colorado. The park is a World Heritage Site and the nation's largest archeological
preserve. It features 4,000 known archeological sites, including 600
cliff dwellings. Between 600-1300 AD the nomadic Anasazi people
occupied the area. As the tribe prospered, members built permanent
homes, raised towers and built hundred-room buildings into the cliffs of
Mesa Verde near their planted crops. Anasazi culture flourished for
hundreds of years, then they vanished suddenly and mysteriously.
