April 26, 2010
MESA VERDE NATIONAL PARK, Colo. (AP) – The Salazar brothers are headed to Mesa Verde National Park to promote better campgrounds and roads coming from stimulus money.
Interior Secretary Ken Salazar and Rep. John Salazar are headed to the park Sunday morning to visit the site of a future visitors’ center. Mesa Verde is getting about $10.1 million in stimulus money designated for national parks.
The planned improvements include the biggest update to the Spruce Tree House Trail since the cliff dwelling opened to the public in 1908. Campground and roads are also getting rehabbed.
