We are in the beautiful town of Cortez, Colorado. We will be using this town for all our shopping needs as a base town while we do more exploring in the area.

The southwestern Colorado town of Cortez is an archaeological center of America. It is located between the entrance to world-famous Mesa Verde National Park and the fascinating Ute Mountain Tribal Park. We will definitely be visiting Mesa Verde National Park soon.

Cortez is also only 39 miles from the famous Four Corners (where the borders of Colorado, Utah, Arizona and New Mexico meet) making this a very convenient place for us to camp.

We found the perfect spot for the next month. It is right by a nice fishing pond, Jerry is already getting his fishing equipment ready to fish for trout. :-) Check back later for more from Colorado.
