MC Southwest Roadtrip DAYS 14 & 15 - Mesa Verde and Arches National Park
Mesa Verde and the ancient Puebloean ruins known as Spruce Tree House are some of the best preserved examples of their unique architectural style. The short but steep hike down to the site is so worth it once you get to walk about and poke your head around.
I tried my hardest to avoid it but the center stretch of Utah left little options besides the I-70. The mission was to get to the town of Panguitch before sunset. I'm happy to say we made it without breaking (m)any laws.
