Consider this a late post because this is a recap of Labor Day. But better late than never! We made a last minute decision to head north to Vernal, UT and Dinosaur National Monument. Vernal itself is pretty small, but has some good eats, a brewery, and the Dinosaur museum. The surrounding area, however, is incredible. Between Ashley National Forest, Fantasy Canyon, and Dinosaur the views are spectacular. We spent a rain soaked and lightening strike filled night camping in Ashley (lightening so bad, Derek woke me up at 3am to go sit in the car) in between seeing the sights. We ventured into Colorado as well to check out their side of Dinosaur. All in all a great weekend exploring more of this beautiful state we live in!
