Today’s opening ceremonies are still in full swing and are due to last for another three hours (at the time of writing).
This morning, I attended the first part of the Grand Opening with Mayor Blum giving a welcome speech. Mr. Kopp, the Camp King historian, gave an informative and witty presentation of the depot’s purpose. A U.S. American diplomat was also in attendance.

The depot is now open and can be viewed. Here are some photos of the archived material.
I walked up to the Mountain Lodge which was advertised as Open Doors (with permission from the new owner) for the public in the afternoon. While I was there around noon, the doors were still closed and did not even look like they would open up any time soon…
With one entrance overgrown by bushes and layered in snow, and the other one boarded up, I wonder what’s in store for the public to see.
