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.

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.
