Life on California's beautiful Central Coast

Mesa Verde ruins

Overall assessment: there are amazing historic housing remnants of the Pueblo to be seen here. However, the degree to which the park needs to manage the crowds that come to see them means that you must see these amazing ruins while in large groups.

These groups, more often than not, contain multiple screaming children. It is shocking to see how little behavioral control many parents today have over their kids.

Nevertheless, the ruins are truly special and I am glad we went to see them. I would probably not go back to the park. I’d also consider selecting a variety of the ruins available in New Mexico, like Bandelier and others, for a more hassle-free historical experience.

OK.. so they're not all screaming all the time.
