Just returned from a stay at the BW Antlers in Vernal Utah. Hotel was great. Large rooms, very clean, nice pool, very helpful staff, reasonable rates. We've stayed in several hotels in town, and the Antlers tops them all.
Bad news is that the dinosaur quarry at Dinosaur National Monument has closed indefinately due to dangerous damage to the building. Huge disapointment, but not the end of the world. There are a lot of fun things to do in Vernal. The museum of natural history and the wild west museums are still open.
The highlight was a trip to the McConkie Ranch in Dry Fork canyon, about seven miles from center of town. Here you will find some of the highest quality Indian petroglyphs in the world. Be sure to take the lower path to the Three Kings panel. Unbelievable! You can walk right up to them (be careful not to actually touch any). Leave a donation for the owners of the land in the small shed, otherwise it's free.
The upper trail is much harder walking (climbing) and the rock art is not nearly as spectacular. Best to go in cooler weather, or early morning. Medium dificulty hike, but take lots of water.
