That said, we headed to Mesa Verde for a long four day weekend with my road-tripping-across-the-country parents. One of the things Fritz and I have PROMISED to do, living in Colorado, is take the piccolini to lots and lots of national parks. We hope our home base in Colorado will allow us to do this in a slow and measured way; as opposed to a big, gigantic trip kind of way.
I've always been the most intrigued by Mesa Verde with the cliff dwellings; it was a great place to start.
