Rocky Mountain N.P. was dedicated on Sept. 4, 1915, in Horseshoe Park as seen in this photo taken on that day. There were about 300 people attending.
Not all of the attendees arrived by car. Several came by horseback and, if you enlarge the picture, there appears to be a motorcycle just above the lone horse.
Box lunches were handed out, as can be seen in this photo of formally attired picnickers. We could not get to the actual site because the road was closed due to the 2013 flooding.
The fork to the right in this old photo leads to the Park entrance and the dedication site a little further down. Although slightly reconfigured, the intersection appears today (after much walking around) as it used to.
