Dinosaurs, extinct for millions of years, are still very much alive in the imaginations of young and old alike. Spend a weekend around Vernal in the northeast corner of Utah and you'll find dinosaurs aplenty -- their remains, their likenesses, and even their footprints. Dinosaurs today have different groups looking after them. You'll find federally maintained dinosaur bones at Dinosaur National Monument and state-maintained dinosaurs at the Utah Field House. You can even stay at a motel with a dinosaur theme. This is the real Jurassic park, a monument to the remnants of life on Earth millions of years ago. Take time to explore and wonder.
