Cortez is just 20 miles from Mesa Verde National Park and 119 miles from Canyon de Chelly National Monument. We arrived here at about 3:30AM on Saturday May 22 after learning of high winds predicted for the entire state of New Mexico. So we left Santa Fe around 8:30 on Friday night. On both Saturday and Sunday the winds were a sustained 30-40MPH with 50-60MPH gusts. Because of winds, we had to postpone our visit to the parks. We plan to visit Mesa Verde on Saturday May 29, but we likely won't make it to Canyon de Chelly on this trip.
