Canyons of the Ancients National Monument Colorado – Goosenecks State Park Utah

Canyons of the Ancients National Monument Colorado – Goosenecks State Park Utah

After one and a half months of vanlife around Colorado we made our way towards Utah via Cortez, located on the Southwest corner of Colorado. From there we drove through the Canyons of the Ancients to Mexican Hat and visited the stunning Goosenecks State Park.

We planned to explore the stunning Canyons of the Ancients National Monument but due to several days of pouring rain we chose to instead visit the Anasazi Heritage Center, located in Dolores, Colorado. The museum offers a beautiful exhibit with artifacts and tools from the ancient people with education on the Anasazi culture and film documentaries and photo exhibits.

We stayed a couple of days in Cortez to get some work done at the Spruce Tree Espresso House, a cafe with delicious coffee and tea, smoothies and vegetarian and vegan food options as well as free wifi and lots of seating which is a welcoming way to get some work done as a digital nomad.

The small town has a couple of different restaurants and we especially loved the farm to table food at The Farm Bistro.

We were delighted to find a great yoga studio called Heart and Core Yoga Studio where we enjoyed a great vinyasa flow class. After speaking to the teacher who is also a homesteader we met the next day for an interview on sustainable living, check out the interview.

After a few days in Cortez, we made our way into the State of Utah and visited the incredible Goosenecks State Park, a state park with picnic area and campsites located in Balding UT where we took a hike along the canyon and enjoyed the gorgeous views:
