This past year, the Capitol Christmas Tree was chosen from the Grand Mesa and by all means, transporting the tree is no small feat.
Every year this project includes finding a tree, designing and ordering ornaments all the while, getting a 104-foot tractor-trailer ready to transport the tree across the country.
This past year the tree traveled from Grand Mesa through Park County and some of the residents were able to take some photos! We want to thank Kevin Copeland and Allison Tesh Hansel for donating these to the Park County Local History Archives!
