We will finally make it to Mesa Verde in mid to late April. We are staying two nights Cortez. Have been a bit thrown by Spruce House and Cliff Palace being closed. I am not sure that the available guided tour is doable as I am concerned both about heights and the tunnel. My husband has bad knees and I'm a wimp.
What I'm not clear about is whether we'd be able to get up close to any other dwellings. Seen quite a few cliff dwellings from viewpoints to date and had hoped in Mesa Verde to achieve a more intimate experience. I wonder if any of you have any suggestions.
