Montezuma County

Colorado, CO, United States
11 Kudos
Montezuma County in southern Colorado is a beautiful area that is home to the Mancos Valley, the nice city of Cortez, Mesa Verde National Park and borders the four corners region as well. We spent a night at the Holiday Inn here and explored everything from the four corners monument to the national park. It was really beautiful in the summer and not to hot but very green and lush in the valley area (the four corners has more of a dessert feel to it though). The holiday Inn was nice and we went swimming there as well s ate dinner and enjoyed some time together.
