Chimney Rock in Southwestern Colorado is expected to become a national monument. Pres. Obama will likely sign a proclamation preserving the area which holds spiritual significance to tribe members in that area. Some dignitaries were there today attending a celebration at Chimney Rock. They included Sen. Michael Bennet, Sec. of Interior Ken Salazar and Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack. The move to sign the proclamation has bipartisan support and is a timely signing considering Obama is in a tight race with Republican Candidate Mitt Romney in Colorado which is considered a crucial state for both parties.
