Dinosaur National Monument spreads across the Utah-Colorado border. It is rich in fossils and fascinating rock formations. Try a Tour of the Tilted Rocks or the Rainbow Park/Island Park Road scenic drive. Since most of the park is in Colorado, there are more scenic drives there, such as Deerlodge Park, Echo Park Road, Yampa Bench Road and Gates of Lodore where there is a campground. Hiking and river rafting give you a chance at another view of the scenery.

Dinosaurs, fossils and rocks all go together. Utah is known for its beautiful red rocks, in all shades, formed in various geological eras. These natural beauties are a large part of the reason for the state's popularity to visitors.
