Dedication of the long-awaited new kiosk at the Wooly Mammoth lot (I-70 and Hwy 93, Exit 259) took place June 30, 2016. Here are a few photos of the event.
Kristie Melendez, LLHA president, provides background on Lariat Loop projects at the grand opening and dedication of the seventh interpretive kiosk installed around the 40-mile National Scenic Byway.
“We’re trying to make this a destination that more people know and are aware of, whether they’re visitors to the area or people who have lived her a long time and don’t even know that this beautiful gem in our community exists.”
Joe Tempel, former Executive Director of LLHA, shepherded the project from concept to completion.
