Rocky Mountain National Park celebrates 100th anniversary

Rocky Mountain National Park celebrates 100th anniversary

ROCKY MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK, Colorado (AP) -- Rocky Mountain National Park is celebrating its 100th anniversary on Monday.

During its first year, the park drew 31,000 visitors to its forests. Last year, a record 3.4 million people visited the park, one of the National Park Service's crown jewels.

Since its founding, the park has had its ups and downs. Gasoline rationing cut the number of visitors in 1942, and the park is still rebuilding from devastating floods in 2013.

After the floods, the Federal Highway Administration stepped in to repair Old Fall River Road. The road is expected to reopen on July 4.
