Parents and Teachers: Please note we are making some internal changes to the site. As a result, the Great American Multiplication Challenge, Spellerz!, Burnside's Billions and couple of other games will not show statistics or return save codes for the next few days. They will be playable, but no data will be saved. They should be fully functional again by the end of the week. As always, please support this site by following me on FACEBOOK or TWITTER.

Mesa Verde

   
 
 
 

Mesa Verde National Park, located in southwestern Colorado, features unparalleled views into pre-colonization America. From 600 AD to 1300 AD, the park was home to Ancient Puebloan people who built cliff dwellings (houses built into shallow caves in the canyon walls). One of the dwellings,
named Cliff Palace, is the largest cliff dwelling in North America. It contains about 150 rooms, which indicates it was home to between 100-120 people.
