Cliff Palace today, the largest dwelling in the park. Beth decided she was up for 8-10 foot ladders. We climbed down several ladders to descend 100 feet down from the top of the Mesa.
Two days was enough time to get a feel for the park, but we could easily have spent more time here. Wetherill Mesa is another third of the park we didn't visit.

Gateway to the park, the visitor's center has a small museum and rangers to answer questions. This is also where you sign up for guided tours of the cliff dwellings.
Point Lookout is the first major landmark. The road winds around it to reach Morefield Campground on the other side.
Beth fell coming out of the bath house and is turning black and blue. That was scarier than the cliff dwellings.
Campsites here are $34.72 per night for dry camping. There are 267 sites, 15 of which have full hook-ups.
