After leaving Bryce we traveled through the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument on our way to Bluff, Utah.
We stayed at the Desert Rose Inn in Bluff, Utah. Appropriately there was a view of the bluffs from the Inn balcony.
Will and Ben enjoyed their stay.
The highlight of the trip for Will and Ben was visiting Four Corners.
Mesa Verde National Park was our last stop. I have wanted to visit Mesa Verde for many years and the park did not disappoint.
Will and Ben earned their Junior Ranger badges after demonstrating their knowledge of Mesa Verde to the Park Ranger.
I recommend staying at the lodge inside Mesa Verde since it takes over half an hour to travel from the park entrance to the visitor center. In addition, the lodge motel rooms are comfortable with beautiful views. This was the view from our balcony.
Will spent part of his evening at Mesa Verde writing postcards.
