See our Small Group programs.
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

The information packet included for this program suggests one fly into Cortez. The only airline that goes into Cortez is Great Lakes. Last year I flew on this airline and would NOT recommend it. Folks from a different program in Cortez do not recommend this airline. It has become increasingly unreliable. You may want to explore other travel arrangements.

There was a visit scheduled the first time I went. The second time there was no visit. We all had such fun curating artifacts at the B&B that we chose to stay there, rather than visit Mesa Verde in the snow. You might talk with Jerene at the B&B to find out what the plans are for next winter.

Does this program include a visit to Mesa Verde National Park?

I don't drive but would like to attend this. I would need a ride from Santa Fe, NM. I will help pay for gas. Anyone coming by here? Thanks, Lillian

Lillian, Jill Craig and I will be renting a car in Albuquerque and driving from there. If you can get to Albuquerque, you could ride with us. Janet Werkman

I attended this program last year, too, and enjoyed it very much. It will be fun to participate again this year, and see a few of you again!

Mary Jane Corliss Jan 01, 2014 at 04:14 PM

I attended this event last year. ( 2013 ) I know you will all enjoy this opportunity to learn about the ancient ones from this area and to be of service.
Janet Werkman Jan 01, 2014 at 09:09 PM

Thanks. I'm looking forward to it.

Jill Craig Jan 01, 2014 at 10:05 AM

Janet - I had thought of flying to Albuquerque also. Let me know what your plans are. Jill
Janet Werkman Jan 02, 2014 at 04:35 PM

Jill, I am planning to rent a car in Albuquerque, but I haven't made a flight reservation yet. Are you interested in sharing a rental car?
Jill Craig Jan 02, 2014 at 04:43 PM

Yes if our timing will work. Want to contact me at jillmcraig@yahoo.com. Easier than logging in all the time.
Janice Burt Jan 03, 2014 at 10:03 AM

Janet and Jill, I look forward to meeting both of you in CO on Feb 16. If we are representative the group will be heavy on J names.

Janet Werkman Nov 08, 2013 at 10:46 AM

I will be going on this trip in Feb. 2014. I will probably fly to Albuquerque (possibly Denver?) and would like to ride share with someone who is driving from there. Janet
Janice Burt Nov 25, 2013 at 11:38 AM

I am now registered for this program. I plan to arrive in Cortez by air on Saturday afternoon and probably stay in Cortez that night. Anyone interested in sharing a cab to Kelly Place from Cortez on Sunday afternoon?
Jill Craig Jan 26, 2014 at 04:56 PM

Janice - Janet & I will be driving through Cortez. Send me an email if you still need a ride - jillmcraig@yahoo.com
Janice Burt Jan 26, 2014 at 08:24 PM

Janice Burt Jan 26, 2014 at 08:26 PM

Jill, I replied to your email address but am replying here also. I have now booked to stay at Kelly Place on Saturday night so will not be going out from Cortez. Thank you very much for the offer, I appreciate it, but will meet you at Kelly Place on Sunday afternoon.
