photo of landscape of Dinosaur National Monument

View of the landscape of Dinosaur National Monument. If you look closely you can see the trail.

Dinosaur National Monument in Utah is isolated, and while the scenery is nice, it isn’t what I would call spectacular. You can spot fossilized dinosaur bones which are amazing in fact, but almost undetectable within the surroundings.

They are about to open up a visitor’s center which might have some nice exhibits (it wasn’t open when I went).
