Dinosaur National Monument - Colorado

There has been plenty of evidence found that dinosaurs once lived here. Bones are scattered throughout these hills and mountains. Today the dinosaurs have given way to desert creatures and the terrain has a variety of mountains, steep canyons, wild rivers, and desert. Homesteaders and Indians lived in this wild area and left a few marks behind. It is fun to explore this area where so many different feet have trod.


There are many fabulous views in the park. One of my favorites was Echo Park.

Hiking Trails

There are also quite a few hiking trails in the park ranging from the east ones to difficult ones into the backcountry.
