Making a Mess of Mesa Verde

I just read that the Mesa Verde National Park is in danger due to forest fires. Oh the horror! What an amazing place...

I recently saw an episode of California's Gold that featured Mesa Verde. California's Gold is an odd show that's obviously put together on a shoe-string budget, but it's so informative and Huell Howser is such a goof you can't help but watch. CG is caught in limbo between prime time quality and public access cheese. It's simply low-fi television at it's finest.

Ya know, when I was there a few years ago, I got to talk to one of the resident archeologists that work at Mesa Verde. They had just had a few large lightning- caused wildland fires and, introducing myself as wildland firefighter, he (secretly - sssshhhh) admitted to me that they love it when the fires burn through, because they get to find new digs, and more archeology.

I haven't been to Mesa Verde, but when I was in the National Park Service my paycheck went there once. Of course I was working at the Castillo in St. Augustine at the time...eventually I did get paid.
