Dinosaur National Monument straddles the borders of Utah, Colorado and Wyoming. Much of it can be accessed only by winding dirt roads.
Its stellar attractions include a Dinosaur Quarry building, which shelters a fossilized cliff from which 1,500 dinosaur bones and fragments jut.
There are a number of spectacular high overlooks scattered through the Monument, including a spectacular gorge towering above the Green River called the Gates of Lodore in the northern (Wyoming) corner.
Another very special place is Echo Park, also called 'The Center of the Universe' a favorite paradise for river rafters.
The most amazing formation we experience may also be the best high viewing site in the entire southwest, rivaling the great walls of the Grand Canyon. That site is called Harper's Corner. Here, a twenty-foot-wide ledge of stone has a 4,000 foot sheer dropoff to the river on each side, something not found in any other park.
