Breckenridge to Mesa Verde


Spent a day camping in the high country above Breck.  Camping is always good; backpacking better–especially in a recession.  My sons dig it as much as I.


Afterward pushed on to Durango, a curious admixture of New Age, Old Age, and Cowboys.  I’ve always liked the town, having first visited it when I was 6, but mainly go there because it’s a gateway to Mesa Verde and Monument Valley.


No time for the valley this year, but we hiked Mesa Verde all day in the desert heat.  The Petroglyph Trail is one of my favorites.  Same for my sons.
