Far View Communities Layout

There were so many interesting sites at Mesa Verde, including the Far View Communities of mesa-top villages. Once again, we took lots of photos but I managed to narrow it down to my favorite eight! The sketch I used actually features eight vertical 4" x 6" photos, but I managed to adapt it to fit my photos by making a couple of changes. For the Music challenge over at, I used some lyrics from Amy Grant's song "If these Walls Could Speak" as my journaling because it's a little fascinating to ponder what scenes these ancient walls could tell about if they could only speak.

It's hard when you travel to narrow down the photos, I can relate! This sketch was great for getting lots in the layout, so glad to have you playing along with us at Let's scrap!
