During the last stretch of our 3.5-week road trip, we spent two days in Vernal, Utah. First we dropped by the impressive new location of the Utah Field House of Natural History State Park Museum to visit Allosaurus and friends.
Then we headed a few miles out of town to Dinosaur National Monument to see some sauropod (longneck) fossils still in their original rocky locations.
The white arrow is pointing to the end of a femur bone. We could also see parts of the spinal column and foot bones. It was pretty exciting!
Littlest was hoping to see some real, live dinosaurs, but alas, we had to be satisfied with a little live lizard.
It was such a beautiful setting. And under 100 degrees, so we were grateful. It can get much hotter.
