We started off at Aztec Ruins. The grounds were absolutely beautiful and we loved entering the kiva. A kiva is used for ceremonies and religious purposes. They are all round in nature and have pillars around them.
Several of the remains are still intact including some of the T-shaped door frames and the original kivas.
I love this picture of the boys with the ruins in the background. The boys love to climb through the runis and discover all kinds of old rocks and artifacts.
As we left there, we headed to Mesa Verde National park, but not before stopping in Durango. David and I could both live in the mountains somewhere. These La Sal Mountains were absolutely beautiful in southern Colorado.
