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.
