Mesa Verde Country in Colorado: Churros, weavers and wine

Agritourism is thriving in rural Mesa Verde, Colorado. “Talk is sheep,” laughs Betsy Harriston, while cradling a Navajo Churro sheep so we can run our fingers through the white wool. “This is genetically the same as the ancient sheep raised by the tribe for its blankets and clothes.” The sheep bleats plaintively in the expanse of Harriston’s Crabapple Tree Ranch near Mancos, Colo. in the shadow of Mesa Verde National Park.
