Mancos Valley From 7875ft


The road to Mesa Verde National Park leaves the valley floor near Mancos, Colorado and just goes up. There is a view point just before the highway turns inland towards the mesa top. This is part of what you can see from the viewpoint. Like the title says, we are at 7875’ elevation. The near ridge on the right is about 3 miles away and the snow capped peaks on the left are twenty miles distant. The air was cold and the wind brisk but invigorating. A great way to start a visit to another fantastic National Park.

In the best light…
