This report would not have been possible without the help of the byway
groups and their volunteers. We would like to extend our gratitude to everyone
at the following Scenic and Historic Byways: Dinosaur Diamond, Frontier
Pathways, Gold Belt Tour, Grand Mesa, Santa Fe Trail, San Juan Skyway, Top
of the Rockies, and Trail Ridge Road. We would also like to thank the staff
at Rocky Mountain National Park, Bureau of Land Management, Colorado Welcome
Centers, and the Interpreters at Old Bent Fort and Dinosaur Ridge. Your
help and knowledge are very much appreciated.
