Driving a Mustang through Mesa Verde  (4 Answers)

Is it advisable to visit Mesa Verde National Park while driving a Mustang convertible? I assume that while driving safely, there is no great security risk for passengers, I am more concerned about possible damage to the car (it is a rental). Thanks!

Logistics of touring Spruce Tree, Cliff house, Balcony House  (1 Answer)

If I were to arrive at Mesa Verde Visitor's center early enough to obtain tickets for Cliff House, and Balcony House, assuming I could get tickets to both, and I also wanted to visit Spruce Tree, what would be the logistics of seeing all three in a day?

For example, of these three, which do I visit 1st, 2nd, 3rd?

How much time should I allow for each?

How much time is necessary to get from one tour, and be there in time for the next location's tour?

Has anyone managed to do these three in a day?

Thanks for your help.

Driving time to Mesa Verde  (3 Answers)

Mapquest shows driving time from the Tusayan, AZ to Cortez, Colorado as 4 1/2 hours. Does this seem accurate? How long does it take to take a detour to the Four Corners Monument?

Mesa Verde, Grand Canyon and...?

Hi! After the VT Texas Meet on Sept. 27-28, I was thinking of flying west to a yet unidentified location (Santa Fe? Phoenix? Las Vegas?) where I could rent a car (unless public transportation could be an option, but I doubt it) and head to the Grand Canyon and Mesa Verde National Park, doing maybe some kind of loop and seeing other sights on the way (I have about 11 days)... Thing is, I have no idea what the roads and weather can be like in that area by late Sept.-early Oct. and I'd rather avoid heavy traffic... What then would be the best starting point?
Also, I'm not sure how much I can see in that time span, given that I'd really like to go to these 2 spots, but there seems to be a lot to see in that area... Any recommendation is welcome - also regarding guided tours and accommodation (I'm more or less on a budget)...
'Merci beaucoup' if you can help! :-)

Which ranger guided tour?  (2 Answers)

This summer we will visit Mesa Verde NP. We will be arriving at the park around 4 pm. We like to purchase tickets for a ranger led tour for the next morning.
Which tour do you suggest? Cliff palace, Balcony House or Long House. We are a family of four. Kids 13 and 15.

We have booked a room in the Far View Lodge. Any suggestions how to spend our evening in the Park?

After the ranger led tour we still have some time befor we leave for Monument Valley and Four State Corners. What should we not miss?

Any hot tips  (2 Answers)

I'm going to Mesa Verde in April. I don't think the lodge is open yet. Will it be snowy? Any hot tips for hikes, motels, restaurants in the area?
