(Neb)-Summit Road Open for Viewing Holiday Lights
(GERING, NE) The Summit Road at Scotts Bluff National Monument will
be open free of charge, weather permitting, from 4:30 p.m. until 9:00 p.m.,
beginning on Friday, December 21, through Sunday, December 23, 2012, so
visitors may view the holiday lights of the surrounding area. Entrance
fees will not be charged during these hours. The summit gates will be
locked at 9:00 p.m. each evening, and all vehicles must be down from the
summit by that time.
“Viewing the lights at night has been a very popular activity for
many years, especially for local residents,” said Superintendent Ken
Mabery, “We are pleased to continue the tradition and hope that many people
will take the opportunity to enjoy the nighttime view from the summit.”
Visitors coming to the National Monument to view the lights are
reminded that winter conditions on the summit can be hazardous due to ice
and snow. Visitors should use caution when walking at night, stay on the
trails, and bring a flashlight. Drivers should be alert for other visitors
in the summit parking lot.
