I'm in Colorado this evening after spending a wonderful day in and around Dinosaur National Monument.
I entered the Park address (which is not the same as the Visitors' Center) into my GPS, and it had me turning on a very dusty red gravel road. I didn't even mind because the scenery was so beautiful. (Click photos to enlarge.)
I finally made it to the V.C., bought my postcards, souvenirs, got information, etc., and then headed up to the Quarry Wall. I took a lot of photos and most are self explanatory. My grandson, Liam, is sure to recognize all the dinos and bones.
The next photos were taken at the Quarry Wall, and I apologize for having so many. (The 1st one is a view from the front of the bldg.)
Ok, I know this is more than enough pictures for one day. I have a few more that I'll include tomorrow, of the Quarry bldg., plus my trail walk and a couple from Colorado. So far the scenery hasn't been spectacular in Colorado (I've only been on I-40), but I will include a couple of photos where I tried to get the beautiful deep rosy red rock, but they didn't quite turn out as striking as I had hoped.
I have no idea where I'm going tomorrow except that I'm heading up Wyoming way. I've been seeing roadside adverts all afternoon for Stetson hats; I think I'd like a cowgirl's stetson, cowgirl boots, and - say it with me Ms. Belinda - a tall, rugged weathered cowboy!
