MOLSON REPORT #11 – Cliff Place
Mesa Verde, Colorado
This is the last of the National Parks we were able to visit before the shut down. Since we didn’t know about the shut down at the time, we had planed to revisit the park the next day as well.
The 23 mile drive to Cliff Place on a 2-lane road was reported to me by the clan members as “challenging for someone sensitive to heights & narrow roads with drop-offs”. We left the RV at Cortez since no trailers were allowed in the park and drove the truck for an hour to the site where we met the ranger.
He gave us an introduction and a warning about the difficulties of getting into and out of Cliff Place. He also reported 2 tourists fainting and one heart attack. The clan male decided not to risk it, so I accompanied the clan female.
You can see why they call it Cliff Place.
Here’s a picture of me entering the doorway. Notice the great view!! Wouldn’t it feel great to get up every day an be greeted by that scene?
Do you think someone was storing the corn for a late night popcorn snack.
I wonder where the owner went?
See ya in Albuquerque. Molson
