Summer Views from Chapin Mesa

North-Northeast to the San Juan Mountains

Chapin Mesa is the site of the Mesa Verde Anasazi ruins Balcony House and Cliff Palace.  These are the views you see before the descent below the cliff rim to visit Balcony House.

These views from the Chapin Mesa rim are companions to two photographs of Balcony House, taken on the same morning. You are looking northeast across Soda Canyon, to a thunderstorm building above the San Juan mountains in the distance. Route 550 from Durango to Silverton climbs passes into these peaks, on the way to Telluride. Chapin Mesa is part of Mesa Verde National Park.

The following fine art image is a combination of the previous photographs
