President Joe Biden will travel to Colorado next week to designate Camp Hale as a national monument.   

Senator Michael Bennet, along with Senator John Hickenlooper and other elected officials, sent a letter to Biden in August calling on the president to use the Antiquities Act to designate the high-mountain camp near Leadville which was used to train the 10th Mountain Division for World War II as a national monument.  

The also called for the national monument to include the Tenmile Range in what would be called the Camp Hale-Continental Divide National Monument.
