Mesa Verde was where southwestern Indian tribes lived around 1200 AD.  They moved somewhere around 1275 AD leaving the Mesa Verde area.

We had to climb a 30 foot ladder to get to the Balcony House, built and lived in on the edge of Mesa Verde.  And, then crawl through the original exit that was built small for protection.  Then another ladder and foot holds carved into the rock to get out of the 'house'. 

The views were spectacular from all the lookout areas.
