It's a big pink T-Rex that you can't miss. I have no idea why it get's it's own area. You drive past it and you say "Oh, there's a big pink dinosaur.

Another Roadside Attraction consisting of a large pink dinosaur to get you to stop. Drive by, smile if you must, but no reason to stop.

Large pink dinosaur with a goofy smile and large eyelashes - don't bother stopping. Just glance at it as you drive by.

Ok, it is just a pink statue welcoming you into town but it became something special in the evening when the eye lit up

It's a big, pink, dinosaur! What more can I say! Although, from what little I know about dinosaurs; it's not a T-Rex! I think it's a Brontosaurus! Anyway: it's been a part of Vernal for years, and the little kids will love it! And it's really kind of cool!

Who doesn't love taking a picture in front of a pink Dino? If you are coming in from West it welcomes you to town of Vernal.

My brother White Buffalo said that this is equivalent to the Las Vegas sign at the south end of the strip, where everyone stops to take a picture to prove they were in Vegas. Here's our proof we made it to Vernal.
