Southern Colorado

I promised you I'd post more photos of Mesa Verde and then the days just flew by, as always, and I'm just now sharing.

This reminded me so much of the Grand Canyon.

I believe this was a Kiva; somehow a week ago seems like a long time ago and remembering the details isn't there-I gave the Park newsletter to my daughter for planning a trip and homeschooling.

I have always been drawn to First Peoples/Native American culture and this was no exception. I will say visiting in the middle of a hot spell did not make for my wanting to get out and hike too much.  I appreciate the tours and if they weren't so expensive, we would have gone on some.  If you ever get a chance to visit this wonderland, by all means do.
It's Thankful Thursday and I'm just thankful to have such a rich and incredible life.  There are so many others who aren't enjoying health or contentment, it makes me grateful for every day.
Blessings, Noreen


  1. Noreen, you always have such a grateful heart. I so wish I could know you in person. Your trip looked so interesting. I love history, and have always been interested in how the American Indians lived as well. I read the book Sacajawea many years ago, and it was an all time favorite read!!
    Have a lovely day!

  2. You do have a rich and wonderful life. I look forward to all your activities that you post.

  3. Good morning! This looks like such an interesting little trip. Cute pic of you and your hubby. Yes God has truly blessed you and it makes me smile! Have a good day!

  4. Your pictures tell such a great story. Maybe you'll get to take a tour someday. Lots of history there, I bet. I like your thankfulness.

  5. What gorgeous pictures. I am sorry it was so hot there, though...but it looks like you enjoyed yourself anyway- xo Diana

  6. Mom said she was amazed at how you can go through these ruins and wonders if it is still like that.

    Your friends,

    Murphy & Stanley

  7. I wouldn't have been able to stand the heat. I have also been drawn to the native american way of life...out in Santa Fe we toured many reservations! Beautiful pictures! Hope Hunter is doing well! My father has been in the hospital and is suffering from terrible dementia...I haven't been able to read many blogs lately.

  8. That's beautiful :')
    But where's Hunter?
