Gong in the desert - a good decision or not?

Two months ago, I took my ticket to Cortez with just one day before my departure. Coming from New York, Colorado desert was a really exotic place for me. In a Friday, after job, I made my backpack and I went to the airport. I wanted a non planiffied trip to see with what Cortez can surprise me. I took a two ways ticket for three days. I was surprised to see that Cortez has good temperatures for a desert area. I have visited Mensa Verde National Park and I was impressed about that amazing unique artefacts and ruins. I think that makes Cortez unique in the world. My shoes were the most affected after this journey. In Cortez you can climb,run, ride the bicycle or just have long walks inside the archeological sites. My only regret was that I had already bought my return ticket.

How to travel to Cortez?

Last summer we decided to go to America. The trip destination was Cortez in Colorado. The first step I did with my wife was to acquire the visa requirements and purchase a ticket.The next step was to book accommodation in Cortez. After acquiring the ticket the plans were set we would visit Cortez in a couple of days. It was a great journey coming from Europe. We get a ticket for a direct flight, so in 9 hours we arrived from London to Denver, from there we had another ticket for a direct flight to Cortez. The hotel was as we expected, not so fancy, but clean and well equipped so we've enjoyed a good rest after the long way and before all the trips we were about to make every day in Cortez. We took tickets to any event or activity which happened in the city.
