See the remains of dinosaurs visibly embedded in the rocks.
Dinosaurs were once roaming in Utah. Today, visitors can see that evidence in the rocks at the Dinosaur National Monument in the Uinta Mountains on the border of Colorado and Utah. The bones are amazing and embedded into the rocks. A central two-story building allows visitors to view the spectacular displays. The quarry was originally preserved in 1915 and was expanded in 1938. The park has over 800 paleontological sites and has fossils from Allosaurus, Deinonychus, Abydosaurus, and Sauropod dinosaurs. Visitors can touch some of the fossils dating back to 149 million years ago. The monument has also preserved cultural histories that date back 10,000 years ago.
Visitors are welcome to tour the dinosaur quarry, go on driving tours through the park, hike some of the nature trails, go backpacking, white-water river rafting, take pictures, go bird watching, fishing, or biking.
