According to the White House, Vice President Biden was issuing a proclamation to establish the Camp Hale-Continental Divide National Monument prior to making a stop in Vail, Colorado. This monument would protect a mountainous area that encompasses 53,804 acres (21,770 hectares).
According to the White House, the region was once inhabited by Native Americans and used as a training site for American soldiers serving in the 10th Mountain Division as they prepared for combat in the Italian Alps.
According to an information sheet published by the White House, “This action will honour our nation’s heroes, Indigenous people, and their legacy by safeguarding this Colorado terrain while supporting jobs and America’s outdoor recreation industry.” 
Following his time in Vail, Vice President Biden will continue his trip to Santa Monica, California, where he will participate in activities on Thursday and Friday in the greater Los Angeles area. On Friday, he will depart for Portland, which is located in Oregon.
There, he will take part in a volunteer event with the Oregon Democrats that is focused on the grass-roots level. On Saturday, he will serve as the featured speaker at a reception for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Tina Kotek.
