A prolific blogger and frequent traveler, Ammon Cunningham would like everyone to know that Utah, the state where he was born and raised, is a lot more than a great place to live. The state also features a great many travel destinations that everyone should see. Among the most beautiful is Dinosaur National Monument.

Dinosaur National Monument doesn’t actually have the ancient reptiles running around. There are, however a great many signs that they used to, with an amazing number of fossils in places like Carnegie Quarry, which features Quarry Hall, where visitors can see the mother lode of fossils. However, it’s not just dinosaurs and that draw tourists to the area, anyway. The park includes some of the most incredible vistas anywhere in the world, including some of the most breathtaking rock formations and beautiful mountain and river views in the American West. And you don’t have to just look at everything and go; Dinosaur National Monument also features activities like river rafting and camping, so that anyone can stay and enjoy themselves as long as they want.
