Trip to the Mesa Verde National Park from Charlie and Hayden's perspective
06/14/2012 - 06/14/2012
Okay, today Tricia and Rich took all the kids to Mesa Verde National Park.. we thought we would let you hear about the park from their perspective.....
The Park Ranger was Ellen and talked about what we could bring and not bring into the dwellings... only water, non flavored water. She put Megan in charge of the group and Charlie, the side kick, was the answer man, he knew all the answers to the questions and answered before anyone else could. We climbed a 16foot ladder and a 32 foot ladder with 29 rungs and crawled through a 13 foot tunnel as big as a small square..."Aunt Tricia's rear end filled the hole"... Ellen talked about what the Pueblo Indians ate, how they lived and where they got their water from. The water was produced from limestone... when it rained the water would seep through the limestone to a "seeping pool" or reservoir. The Kiva is where they had worship and activities. We were at least 500 feet off the ground with no railings and only Megan guarding the edge. At the end of the day we had our picture with Ellen and were sworn in as Junior Park Rangers.
