Dinosaur National Monument UT is a must see. It is hot and dry in summer so be prepared with plenty of water. Even an hour out there can prove exhausting especially if you are not used to the...

If you’re short on time, skip the Colorado side of the park and head for the Utah side. However, I was glad I squeezed this in, partly to get the additional national park stamp, but also for the...

This is the most amazing place. The Wall of Bones looks like something Walt Disney created… but it’s real… a riverbed littered with hundreds (thousands?) of dinosaur bones… some of which you can touch. It’s a spectacular facility that tells the story of life and death in the age of dinosaurs. Bring water, good shoes and a hat. Kids will love this place. I’m coming back - when it’s cooler! Oh the staff and the tram are great!
What a breathtaking experience. The Quarry was great and amazing to be able to touch a fossil! The Dark Sky was my favorite part, seeing the Milky Way and Andromeda galaxy and an airglow! Petroglyph sites were humbling and worth visiting all of them. Driving around just to see the different rocks is also recommended. So many stunning views. Weather was hot and on/off showers, but so worth it. Saw lizards, chipmunks, warblers, and other animals. Green River Campground is lovely and partially shaded. Campsite #2 has breathtaking views! All park facilities were clean and there's a lot of accessibility and information. Would go back again!
