We were up fairly early and after breakfast, we headed to Mesa Verde. We went to the visitor center and got 10:00 tickets to the Cliff Palace tour. It is about an hour drive from the visitor center to the Cliff Palace so we headed that way. This is a steep, curvy, windy, road up to and on top of the Mesa. There was not too much traffic going in.
