A large National Park has been built to protect the culture of ancient Native Americans.It is called Mesa Verde.It was cold that day in 1988 in southwestern Colorado.Richard Wetherill and his brotherinlaw were trying to find some missing cattle.They were up on Mesa Verde.Spanish explorers had named the area.The high,flat mountaintop is covered with bushes and pine trees.It looks like a huge green table,which is“mesa verde”in Spanish.The two men came to the edge of a deep canyon.Through the falling snow,they saw what looked like a small city across the canyon.It was hanging in the middle of the rock wall.There were many connected rooms built into a natural opening in the rock.They named the ruins Cliff Palace.In the next few days,they found two more large ruins.They named one Spruce Tree House and the other Square Tower House.
The Wetherill family were the first people to study them.Soon after this discovery,Richard Wetherill returned to Mesa Verde,to the ruins that had remained silent and untouched for centuries.
