Enter Mesa Verde at ‘visitor’s sole risk’ during shutdown

National Park Service unable to staff parks
Park ranger Kevin Sturmer, right, tells Sarah Schlesinger of Boulder that Trail Ridge Road is blocked to vehicles after a light overnight snow in Rocky Mountain National Park on Saturday in Estes Park. The road was unplowed because of a partial federal shutdown that has been put in motion because of gridlock in Congress over funding for President Donald Trump’s Mexican border wall.
A sign posted at Mesa Verde National Park on Saturday morning advises visitors to use extreme caution during a partial federal government shutdown that began midnight Friday.
