No better way to start or end a trip to Vernal than a visit to the pink dinos. Quick, easy and a lot of fun.

a pink dinosaur with long lashes but her eyes do move(no, I did not have drink). But, this is not as dumb as the dinosaur a few blocks down. Green and white one wearing cowboy hat, scarf and holding rope in his "hands." Good enough for a silly shot.

Located at the entrance to the town from the East side of Vernal, direction from Naples to the junction with the E Main St. Fun to watch, well built. Perhaps the choice of color is not good idea, but it`s worth spending a few minutes to admire it.

This is located on the east side of town, I believe at Highway 40 and Main. There's nothing to do here, just stop for a picture with a cute dinosaur and Vernal sign. Worth a stop if you have a minute!

You can't miss the opportunity to take a picture with this dinosaur. We did it, have proof m, and that's about it. Can't say much else.

If you're in Vernal to see dinosaurs then you've got to have a picture with the smiling, pink T-Rex.

The Holiday Inn in Vernal, UT was great! I was greeted when I arrived, welcomed as an IHG member and given an upgrade to a King Suite. The room was clean and the TV was huge. I had a quiet evening and a great sleep. The breakfast was excellent. There was quite a variety of food. I will return in... More

As a rite of passage for visiting Vernal, UT it is required that you take a picture with the giant pink dinosaur. She's pretty cute, after all. There is plenty of room to pull off and a nice area where your kids can stand for the picture. She's on the east end of town, towards Dinosaur National Monument. There is... More
