... order to be able to spend a day at Mesa Verde .We journeyed on to Monticello where we called in at the visitors office. Not only did we get instructions about the forest we were aiming for for our picnic lunch but there was free coffee on hand and a museum with artefacts from the early pioneers.

We discovered the Peace Tree Cafe which sprays water all around the verandah of the cafe and in perfect shade had lunch.
We spent the rest of the day in the pool!
