Before driving home on Monday, we went to the Utah Field House of Natural History in Vernal. We also saw their 4th (5th) of July parade. This was a pretty awesome museum (the parade was lame). The dinosaur gardens left something to be desired, but the exhibits were interesting and well-laid out, and there was a lot of hands on stuff for Maggie to do.Utah raptor.Maggie likes Stegosaurus. There have been a lot found around here, so he was well-featured.
We only spent one day actually in the park. The visitor's center is closed (it was built on unstable soil and has basically cracked in half, haha) so you can't see the quarry with 1500 dino bones sticking out. We did the fossil discovery trail...
Maggie completed her workbook and earned a Junior Paleontologist patch.

This was a great 1 mile hike up and along these petroglyph-covered cliffs about 20 minutes outside of Vernal. Highly recommended. The petroglyphs were remarkable and the hike was great. Maggie hiked the whole thing.
