Dinosaur National Monument, Utah

Rocky Cliffs

This is the first opportunity I’ve had in posting an update from my road trip thus far, which is going incredibly well! This was from my first night in Dinosaur National Monument which actually spans both north-eastern Utah and north-western Colorado. The Colorado section wasn’t quite open yet so I camped in the Green River campground and got to go to sleep to the sound of the Green River rushing by. I had passed by it back in 2004 and wasn’t able to go in but was always curious about it. I finally had my chance last week and I’ll be going back into the main section on my way back home. At this point I’m still making my way down to Phoenix having gone through, Dinosaur National Monument, Canyonlands National Park, Canyons of the Ancients National Monument, Natural Bridges National Monument, drove the Burr Trail through Capital Reef National Park and finally waited out a cold front in Zion National Park. I should be in Phoenix this weekend where you can expect more updates!

  3. Thanks Joe! Though I only went to the Fossil Quary section in Utah, it was still quite an amazing place! I'm very anxious to get to the Colorado side in the fall. Looks like a lot of fun!
