Ways to Make
Dinosaur National Monument
Due to the worldwide pandemic, please check for destination travel restrictions prior to visiting/booking
Not actually a National Park, but this National Monument is worth a stop, even if it is a little out of the way. This National Monument has way more to explore than we took the time to see, particularly on the Colorado side of it if you are interested in hiking.
Visit the Dinosaur Bones
Visit the Quarry Visitor Center on the Utah side of the park. It's a quick tram ride to the Quarry Exhibit Hall where you can see the dinosaur bones. The bones are large enough to easily see and touch screen computers help to identify many of the bones.
Take a Hike
Take is a short hike to see a few petroglyphs and Josie's cabin while you're there.
Leave yourself about an hour to explore the quarry exhibit hall. There are two levels to explore.
