Back in July, I wrote about the varied landscapes of Colorado.  In that blog entry, I featured one picture of the Colorado side of Dinosaur National Monument.  Here, I will feature my favorite pictures from the Utah side of the park. Most people come to Dinosaur to see the visitor center exhibits of dinosaur bones.  However, there is also some pleasing landscapes.  One scenic hike is the trail at Harpers Corner with views down onto the Green River.

There are not really any iconic scenes in Dinosaur. However, with some good light and some scouting, you can come up with some nice scenes with colorful sandstone hills, grasses and cottonwood trees.

Besides seeking out landscapes and viewing dinosaur bone exhibits, there are also several nice petroglyph panels in the area.

In May, I will be returning to Utah.  Next time, I will be seeing Capitol Reef National Park.  Come back for that!
