Rocky Mountain National Park officially turns 100 years old Jan. 26. On this date in 1915, President Woodrow Wilson signed legislation establishing the park. A century ago, the word ‘selfie’ didn’t exist in its current form. But these days lots of people are taking the opportunity to pose in front of park signs commemorating the Centennial.
“The signs are already very, very photographed with people in front of them – and even more so now with this great little ‘100th’ banner on the bottom,” said park spokeswoman Kyle Patterson. “We’ll take that off in 2016 – so it’s a great experience for memories to be made, and to say ‘I was there’ at the Park’s 100th anniversary.”
