Summer at Mesa Verde National Park

Just returned home from my summer job at Mesa Verde National Park. This is the third summer and the third National Park that I have spent in my Argosy 26. The Argosy has been a great buy.
I was a little concerned that my 1st generation Tundra would be able to handle the Salt River Canyon and the mountains of Colorado, but it turned out to be no problem.
As in the previous two summers in National Parks in Brownsville, Texas and Pecos, NM, the Argosy provided me with a comfortable home-away from home.

Small world. We were just there on our way home from Burning Man, and if I am not mistaken, you led my tour to Cliff Palace.

Happy Travels.

Sounds like you have really been blessed with the "good life" - is this now a continuing practice - new park every year?

Great pictures - we spent a spectacular few fall days at Mesa Verde a few years ago as part of our "Grand Canyon" road trip - what an incredible park - as are all the parks "down there"!
