Dinosaur Sighting: Dinosaur Inn

Feedloader (Clickability)

While driving through northern Utah on the way to Dinosaur National Monument this past summer, my wife and I passed through Vernal, Utah. There were dinosaurs everywhere. Big ones, small ones, green ones, pink ones... it was hard to look in any direction and not see a dinosaur.

One of the most prominent dinosaurs was this fellow outside the Best Western "Dinosaur Inn." I stopped to snap a picture, but only for a moment. As much as I love roadside dinosaurs I was more anxious to see the ones still encased in rock.
