Mesa Verde National Monument, Colorado
                                                       Mesa Verde is Spanish, translated to English it means Green Table  

Mesa  Verde  has  ancient  Indian dwelling. They were called the Anasazi,
which  means  Old  Ones.  They  built their homes in the sides of the cliffs.
These are not caves, they dug into  the cliffs. Cliff Dwellings and mesa-top

villages  were  built  between  A.D.  450 and 1300. They  disappeared  and
no one knows what happened to them. There are Mountain  Lions in these
canyons. They  had  one at the Ranger Station mounted that had weighed
350 pounds.
