There are cool retro dino statues all over the place in Vernal. Kitchy and fun. But it's not really an attraction. Take a photo and go on your way to see the real dino bones in the park!

Cute large dinosaur statue on the outskirts of Vernal welcoming all to the town. Beautiful potted flowers lining main street really make the town pleasant to visit. Clean wide mainstream with many restaurants and shops.

It is exactly what it says it is - a big pink dinosaur welcoming you to town. You can't miss it entering or leaving Vernal on the East side of town. Kids love it.

We had to stop and get our picture taken! You can't miss it and if you are in Vernal you shouldn't miss it. My girls loved it!

Vernal has a great relationship with dinosaurs and this is an example of how the town makes the most of it.

Vernal is dinosaur country and don't know if this is a must see, but see it you will. Adds a "colorful " touch to this already beautiful and diverse country.

Who does not want to have a friendly dinosaur wave them into town?! Awesome tribute to the area's heritage and Dinosaur National Monument.

Neat landmark for Vernal. Work a picture, certainly leaves you with a smile. Glad town has sense of humor about its heritage.

If you are in town or driving down the main road in Vernal you can't miss Dina the giant Dino welcoming you. A town treasure and crowd pleaser!

We stopped for a photo op here at the insistence of my 5 year old daughter. The fact that it is pink, has eyelashes, and moving eyes was the draw for her. Very cute 2 minute stop.
