On our visit to Mesa Verde National Park, we took two guided tours and a short hike. The cliff dwellings are amazing, and Cliff Palace from above is an iconic view.
This day at Bandelier National Monument in New Mexico was early on in our travels throughout the U.S, and it is still one of our favorite experiences.
We had low expectations of Carlsbad Caverns, but after a full day inside, we walked away completely impressed. Though we have lots of photos in this post, the beauty and scale is hard to capture - but we gave it our best shot.
