A visit to Dinosaur National Monument, which straddles the Colorado-Utah border along the Yampa River, does not have to stop with viewing the excavated fossils in the quarry. Biking, bird watching, camping, rock climbing, hiking, cross-country skiing, and paddling possibilities abound in this remarkable and ancient landscape. The authors use their years of experience at Dinosaur to guide readers to the best recreational opportunities and provide an appreciation of the monument's natural history.
