Commissioner Tom Donnelly led the charge, “The state and National Guard did such a great job getting Highways 34 and 36 open. My wife and I and the kids love to go to Estes Park and enjoy holiday activities. Traveling to Estes Park is as easy as it was before. This is a beautiful time to visit Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park.”
