FALL TOUR OF MESA VERDE NATIONAL PARK, INCLUDING MUG HOUSE

October 4-7, 2019 Cliff Palace

Join Dr. Andrew Gulliford, Professor of History and Environmental Studies at Fort Lewis College, and Peter Pino, former Governor of the Pueblo of Zia, Tribal Council Member and Kiva Leader, who will lead a four-day tour of Mesa Verde National Park.

This year’s tour is very special. It will include a visit to Mug House, a massive, multiroom dwelling (94 rooms and eight kivas) at the farthest end of Wetherill Mesa rarely seen by the public. Every few years the park allows small group visitation and Mesa Verde Foundation is pleased to offer this special opportunity to our supporters. The discoverers of Mug House found many artifacts, including three mugs tied together with a yucca cord, giving Mug House its name.

During the four-day tour, the group will visit iconic cliff dwellings and learn about the history of Ancestral Puebloans who lived at Mesa Verde from both traditional and scholarly perspectives. The tour will include a stay at the Far View Lodge within the park, six meals and an exclusive reception at the Superintendent’s home in the park.

Cost: $1,200/ $1,100 for Mesa Verde Foundation Members

Single Supplement $65.

Limited to 20.
