Eh, the Fossils Aren’t Going Anywhere

As I was looking at sites to see along our trip, Dinosaur National Monument was on many lists. I just learned that the “Quarry Visitor Center” there has been closed since 2006. And is not expected to open within the next couple of years.

The Quarry Visitor Center gave tourists access to view many fossils still in place in a cliff side. Unfortunately, the building has been suffering some structural damage due to foundation shifts and such.

The park still has many other fossils on public display (and even a virtual visitor center), and I am told by those who have been there that the surrounding scenery is fantastic, and a short driving tour of the area is still well worth it.
