Dinosaur National Monument

Overlapping the border between Colorado and Utah, Dinosaur National Monument offers river runners and dinosaur enthusiasts a remote and magnificent attraction that more than rewards the effort to get here. Colorful canyons and endless opportunities to examine fossils and bones make the monument a unique destination, and the Yampa and Green rivers provide cooling relief from what is much of the year a hot and dry desert landscape.
