Stargazing Among Ancient Dwellings

By Kassia Lawrence
A starry night at Hovenweep National Monument

The crisp smell of piñon pines, juniper and sage float through the air as a slight breeze rustles through the desert foliage. Stars twinkle overhead and you can hear the wing beat of a raven as it flies through the dark sky above you. Nearby, an outline of ancient Ancestral Puebloan structures are visible through the starlight and the world feels still and peaceful. Stargaze among ancient dwellings for a unique, thought-provoking experience on your next trip to Mesa Verde Country.

The night skies over Hovenweep National Monument, Canyons of the Ancients National Monument and Mesa Verde National Park are some of the darkest in the country. Because of this, they offer incredible stargazing opportunities year round.

Drei sternenklare Nächte im Mesa Verde Country, Colorado

Die südwestliche Region von Colorado, bekannt als Mesa Verde Country, heißt Besucher willkommen, um den Sternenhimmel zu erleben und alles zu erleben, was es nach Sonnenuntergang zu erleben gibt. Mesa Verde liegt im Zentrum des dunkelsten Himmels, der in den zusammenhängenden Vereinigten Staaten verbleibt, was es zu einem großartigen Ort macht, um Sterne zu beobachten, Astrofotografie zu betreiben und sich zu fragen, was die Ureinwohner von Pueblo vor einem Jahrtausend an eben diesem Himmel gesehen haben. Aber keine Sorge, es gibt auch tagsüber viel zu erleben!

Dalle fattorie al divertimento: tutto quello che puoi trovare in Mesa Verde Country

Mesa Verde Country è pieno sia di antichi pueblos che del fascino tipico del sud-occidentale. Anche se il Parco Nazionale di Mesa Verde attira, giustamente, la maggior parte dei visitatori in questo angolo del Colorado, ci sono comunque molte altre cose da esplorare. Gli appassionati di storia e delle attività all’aria aperta apprezzeranno il ricco passato della regione ma avranno difficoltà nella scelta (c’è tanto da fare)! Inoltre, l’industria alimentare e delle bevande sono molto radicate nel territorio, ed i sapori sono deliziosi quanto locali. Ecco i miei suggerimenti per trascorrere alcuni giorni nel Mesa Verde Country.

Von Farm bis Spaß im Mesa Verde Country

Das Mesa Verde Country ist voller alter Pueblos und südwestlichem Charme. Während der Mesa Verde Nationalpark die Mehrheit der Besucher in diese Ecke von Colorado lockt (und das zu Recht!), gibt es auch über den Park hinaus viel zu entdecken. Geschichtsinteressierte werden die reiche Vergangenheit der Region zu schätzen wissen, und Outdoor-Enthusiasten werden es schwer haben zu entscheiden, welche Aktivitäten sie zuerst angehen möchten. Darüber hinaus hat die Nahrungsmittel- und Getränkeindustrie ein starkes Engagement für – im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes – die Wurzeln der Region, und die Aromen sind genauso köstlich wie lokal. Hier sind meine Vorschläge für ein paar Tage im Mesa Verde Country.

De la ferme au divertissement dans le Mesa Verde Country

Mesa Verde Country regorge de vieux pueblos et du charme du sud-ouest. Alors que le parc national de Mesa Verde attire la majorité des visiteurs dans ce coin du Colorado (et à juste titre!), beaucoup reste à explorer au-delà du parc. Les passionnés d’histoire apprécieront le riche passé de la région et les amateurs de plein air auront du mal à se décider à quelles activités s’adonneront en premier. En outre, l’industrie des aliments et des boissons est profondément attachée aux racines (au sens strict du mot) de la région et les saveurs sont aussi délicieuses qu’elles sont locales. Voici mes suggestions pour quelques jours au Mesa Verde Country.
