16/7/2019- On to the Southwest corner of CO! We made it over Wolf Creek Pass without any problems and through Durango. We stopped in Delores, CO to get information about the ruins nearby. We went on to The Great Hiva. The hiva was neat as one could walk and enter the ancient structure.
Hovenweep National Monument was really interesting.It had free water (good to hikers and picnicking). I wish we had cooler weather and/or more time to spend here. There are 10 or so structures hidden throughout the small valley. After Hoverweep we went to a hike a park volunteer suggested. Between the two locations, we saw 9 wild horses. Some were wandering across the road.
We camped at a free campsite near Mesa Verde’s entrance and got to enjoy the “Thunder Moon” (meteorologists really need to take a break on these names). Pictures tomorrow.
