2021 Fall Tour

October 8-11, 2021

Join leaders Dr. Andrew Gulliford, Professor of History and Environmental Studies at Fort Lewis College, and Christopher Lewis , expert basket weaver and artisan of the Zuni Pueblo, for a four-day tour of Mesa Verde National Park.

Mesa Verde, one of 12 original UNESCO World Heritage sites, is home to thousands of ancient artifacts of Ancestral Puebloan tribes. During these four days, you will visit several cliff dwellings, and learn the history of Ancestral Puebloans who lived at Mesa Verde. The event includes guided tours of some of Mesa Verde’s most iconic sites, lodging (based on double-occupancy), six meals, an exclusive reception at the Superintendent’s home in the Park, and a private viewing of items from the museum’s collection with Dr. Tara Travis.

The Mesa Verde Foundation is thrilled to offer this incredible behind-the-scenes, in-depth experience which includes:

  •  Guided hikes to Long House and Spring House.
  • A chance to experience the Park and its beauty with acclaimed author and historian of the American West, Dr. Andy Gulliford, and descendant of Ancestral Puebloan peo-ple, Christopher J. Lewis.
  • A wine and cheese reception with the MVNP Superintendent at the Superinten-dent’s historic residence, built in 1921 with commanding views of Spruce Tree House.
  • A private viewing of artifacts from the Park’s museum collections with Dr. Tara Travis.
  • A basket making demonstration with expert weaver Christopher Lewis.
