ABOUT THE TOUR
WHAT TO EXPECT
2 HOUR TOUR
1 - 1.5 MILE WALK
(many stops, sometimes uneven terrain)
WILD WEST TALES & GHOST STORIES
WHAT YOU'LL DO
Stroll through Cortez at sunset as we explore the darker history of this supposedly sleepy town. On our walk, you will hear about Cortez's Wild West past, with stories about notorious outlaws like Butch Cassidy, & the Sundance Kid...and some newer criminals too. We will talk about the ghosts hidden in Mesa Verde's beautiful cliff dwellings and how disregarding ancient teachings can bring hauntings to even the most well-meaning archeologist. All in all, we will walk about 1 mile, telling haunted stories or recounting the daring - and deadly - tales of forgotten outlaws. We start & end at local breweries, so adults are encouraged to get into the Wild West spirit with a drink before or after the tour. You aren't guaranteed to see a ghost on this tour, but we hope you feel their spirits lurking around you, or at the very least beckoning you into our modern saloons!
