A Trip To This Fossil Park In Utah Is An Adventure Like No Other
Millions of years ago, dinosaurs roamed Utah. Paleontologists have found the fossilized skeletons of these beasts that date back from the late Jurrasic period (193-136 million years ago) to the late Cretaceous period (136-65 million years ago). There are many places throughout the Beehive State to see dinosaur fossils, but one of the best is Dinosaur National Monument.
