Up early and out to Vernal and then Dinosaur National Monument. This area is true Utah: dramatic angled rock ledges,
millions to billions of years of history captured in fossils.
Vernal is a small town with a wonderful dinosaur visitors center for kids, complete with a garden full of lifesize dinosaurs.
Dinosaur itself is a huge national park, incredibly dry and beautiful, with a cliff face from the Jurrasic period containing
over 700 bones in it, preserved for you to walk through and see. Stunning.
Following dinosaur we did the long drive to Steamboat Springs. We discovered one of the true differences between England
and desolate long drives in America. Very small towns on the map in the US are 1 or 2 houses. Very small towns in the
UK are a pub, a church and 1 or 2 houses. It took us nearly 100 miles of small towns to find lunch!
