Dinosaur National Monument

Ancient history comes alive at Dinosaur National Monument. In one day, you can examine enormous stegosaurus bones preserved in a rock cliff, examine petroglyphs and pictographs made 1,000 years ago by the Fremont people, and touch fossils from creatures that lived 149 million years ago. The monument is also an adventurer's paradise — it stretches from the northeastern corner of Utah across the border, offering more than 200,000 acres of wild canyons, breathtaking rock cliffs, and fast-flowing rivers. Hike through the rock formations, take a thrilling whitewater rafting trip, or relax at one of the monument's campgrounds and enjoy the view. The area is open year-round; the cliffs are stunning any time, but they are especially so after a dusting of snow.
