We were just passing through Vernal on a road trip but I love quirky roadside attractions and art when I travel. This satisfied my needs. Well maintained and fun to find and take a photo. You also need to see the T-Rex and the museum...More

We were there for Thanksgiving weekend. Really enjoyed the Holly parade. Vernal is a wonderful little community very welcoming to visitors. The Pink Brontosaurus was grilling a huge turkey leg :-) So fun!

Yeah it’s just a dinosaur but that’s the point. It’s a giant pink sauropod welcoming you to Dinosaur-land! Get a picture and show your friends. :)

Since Vernal is close to Dinosaur National Monument, this town is trying to capitalize on that with a number of fake dinosaurs around town. I understand real ones are hard to find. Some look pretty bad, others are fairly good. I could not resist taking...More

100% tourist moment leaving the tripod on the street and snapping photos like the tourists we are. Not much to do in Vernal after dark. Go visit the Dino.

Yes, he is big and he is pink and it was such a well manicured area. Vernal takes great pride in their flowers. Such a pretty Dino and downtown.

A must stop on your trip to Vernal. I'd never been to Vernal before but of course I knew about the iconic pink dinosaur so I had to stop for pictures. It's a cool thing to visit.

Many of us remember this from when we were younger. If you don't have such memories then it's just a large pink dinosaur. It is in a nice setting for photos. Considering this area is known for dinosaurs, it's quite an appropriate "statue".

It truly is one of the great wonders of the world. Never have I seen a pink dinosaur before. And don't get me started on his/her eyelashes. Unbelievable

Ummm... it's a pink dinosaur on the east end of town. Did I mention it's pink? Not much to say on this one. Cool if your traveling cross country taking pics of statues...
