Otherwise known as, The Clippah Went West...and Stayed There!
We took a road trip to the Southwest in October 2011. Life just wasn't the same after returning to Chicago, so we moved to Las Vegas in June 2014, acquired one more dog, and a couple more trailers!
This blog is dedicated to my Grandpa Norman, who made it his mission in (later) life to purchase and trade-in as many motor homes as he possibly could. We love you!

10/10 Mesa Verde Cliff Dwellings!
We got sick of hat shopping in Durango-more about that later- and decided to head to Mesa Verde National Park. Because we've seen pictures so many times, we both had an idea of what to expect. Since some of the areas were closed for the season, and we only had half a day there, we spent our time at Spruce Tree House. Although the dwellings were interesting, I think both of us were more affected by the serene beauty of the location itself. Even the 20 mile drive up to the mesa was filled with amazing views, cooler air, surprise deer crossings, and trotting coyotes. We just added some photos to the Cortez Album
