The Colorado National Monument hosted its first Centennial Challenge event, “A Walk Through Time” on Saturday, coinciding with National Public Lands Day.

The event opened up the National Monument to the public for free, even inviting otherwise uninvited canines to visit.

Park officials shut down 14 miles of Rim Rock Drive from the west entrance, in.

Visitors were given the opportunity to walk, bike, or run the scenic route.

National Monument Superintendent Joan Anzelmo says National Public Lands Day is a great reason to enjoy our outdoors, “all Americans own these places, so why wouldn't we celebrate once a year, that we get to have these lands, rather than have them privately developed?”.
