Mesa Verde and the Four Corners area with Lillian

I bought a new Harley Davidson FLHT in 1986 and put almost 40,000 miles on it in the next 15 months that I owned it. One of the trips I took was a two-lane road ride from my home in New York State to Phoenix, where I met my wife Lillian at the airport. From there we visited Monument Valley, Grand Canyon, Petrified Forest, Painted Desert, Canyon de Chelly, Pueblo Cliff Dwellings in New Mexico, Mesa Verde National Park, and Silverton and Ouray in Colorado. We spent the longest time climbing around the ancient ruins at Mesa Verde. The following photos are from that trip.
