If you haven’t already done so, please email your congressional representatives and governor to end the shutdown and reopen Colorado National Monument. Not only is it hurting the local economy, but every day the Monument is losing entrance fees which pay for maintenance projects on the Monument. One example of a project that was to be paid for with entrance fees was the repaving of the West Hill tunnels, a project welcomed by cyclists. Below are website email contacts.
