So we've created a YouTube channel to upload Hamp's videos...once again w/out a highspeed connection this process is kind of long so we've just picked a few favs until we can locate faster WiFi...Enjoy :)

Yesterday, we went to Mesa Verde and Canyons of the Ancients in Cortez, Colorado...Mesa Verde was absolutely amazing...we got to explore cliff dwellings from 750 AD...like actually climb down into a kiva (which was like a family's home) The ranger told us that some of the artifacts/rocks actually date back much farther but the dwellings were from the Pueblo Indians that inhabited the area starting around 750 AD and stayed there for over 700 years before a 30-yr drought drove them out.
We only got to explore the Canyons of the Ancients for about an hour and a half so we're going back there today before we leave Cortez...these ruins date back to the Anasazi Indians over 12,000 years ago!!
We'll post videos and pics from yesteday and today hopefully later tonight!!
