Dark Skies over Morefield

Mesa Verde National Park, Colorado, September 15, 2009

Spend a night or two in Morefield Campground, just 4 miles inside Mesa Verde. With nearly 400 sites, there’s always plenty of space! The campground rarely fills. Each site has a table, bench, and grill. Camping is open to tents, trailers and RVs, including 15 full hookup RV sites that require reservations.

Morefield’s campsites are situated on loop roads that extend through a high grassy canyon filled with Gambel Oak scrub, native flowers, deer, and wild turkeys.

Several of the park’s best hikes leave from Morefield and climb to spectacular views of surrounding valleys and mountains.  Camping – National Park Service Mesa Verde

  • Hi Mike – must be a fascinating place … those ancient cave dwellings. I also now see what kiva means …

    Those skies look very threatening … though the walks through the valley would have been interesting … thanks for showing us – Hilary

  • It is quite an interesting place. We have visited there several times. And while the skies were threatening in this picture, as I recall, it only rained where we were at for a very short time.
