Mesa Verde - questions about the 'other' houses

Jump to last reply

I'm planning a trip to Mesa Verde in August. We have one night booked at Far View, the night before and after that in Durango. So two full days.

I've read all about the 'big' houses - Spruce Tree, Cliff Palace, Balcony House and Long House. But what about the rest? I'm not finding much on the others (other than general history). Which of them can be visited. Are any of them 'worth' it if you are also doing the main ones?

My traveling companion has height issues so she won't be doing Balcony House. If we do the other big three is Balcony House different enough that it's worth it for me to do that one alone (and figure out something she can do during that time?). What is different/better about it?

And where are the best view points to look at the houses from afar? Or is it obvious once you get there?

Thanks
