"This 31-mile-long scenic drive climbs from the headquarters of Dinosaur National Monument over a high, rolling plateau to a lofty lookout atop Harpers Corner above the confluence of the Green and Yampa rivers. Dinosaur National Monument spreads across Colorado’s empty quarter—a remote, wild land of sagebrushed valleys, sandstone canyons, and high mesas and mountains. Two distinct natural features comprise Dinosaur National Monument —the unique deposit of dinosaur bones across the border in Utah and the wonderland of canyons incised by the mighty rivers.
