This is Dina, she is so cute. She just got a $25,000.00 restoration and a fresh pink paint job. The T-Rex is further west and sits in a triangle in front of the post office. His is rather ugly and green with buggy light bulb eyes and gets dressed up for all holidays, which makes up for being so ugly.... More

No trip to Vernal would be complete with out pics of the Dinosaurs at both ends of town... the smaller pink one at the east end of towns eyes move..its a fun 5 minute stop. The other one on the west side of town has been there for ever... and seems to change little with the seasons...

My sister had to pull over into the nearest parking lot adjacent to this small town hero, after driving in from the city, she was laughing so hard. Need I say more?
