Hi, I'm curious how long you would suggest for a visit to Mesa Verde. I was thinking a little of a day. Will we need more time than that? What are the must do's while there? My husband and I are late 30's and have a 14 year old daughter. We love hiking and have been to several American Indian ruins. We are doing a good old fashion road trip with our pop up camper through Colorado, Utah and a tad of Arizona so this is 1 stop of many. We plan on being at the Great Sand Dunes National park in the morning and drive to Mesa Verde after Lunch. Maybe have some of that evening at Mesa Verde, the whole next day and possibly some of the next morning because then were onto Page Arizona. Although we want to see as much as we can in 2 and 1/2 weeks, we are not ones that rush through things either.
