Dinosaur National Monument
Previous Next

The largest quarry of Jurassic Period dinosaur bones ever discovered is the source of 200,000 acre Dinosaur National Monument's name. In 1909, twenty miles east of Vernal, paleontologist Earl Douglass discovered a 200-foot long sandbar of sorts which was layered with prehistoric plant and animal fossils. About 350 million tons of fossils, including full skeletons and remains of some dinosaur species that were previously unknown, were excavated by Douglass and his crew. Today, a year-round visitor center built over the quarry protects over 2,000 dinosaur bones left exposed in the sandstone wall. Click here for detailed information on Dinosaur National Monument.
