Green River in Utah
This spot is near the entrance to Dinosaur National Monument. The mountain beyond the river shows light colored rock that is distinctive for the monument. If I recall correctly from a previous visit to the Monument, the dinosaur bone dig is near that mountain of light colored rock.
Claron Twitchell at the border of Colorado and Utah on highway U.S. 40. I walked 33 miles from Vernal, Utah to Dinosaur, Colorado. My jogger stroller cart with all my equipment allows me to keep a good pace, but it is restrictive for finding camping spots. My walk has some similarities to backpacking, but if I was backpacking in mountain wilderness as I normally do, then I would look around for a camping spot that looks good and set up where I want. The jogger restricts me to finding a camping spot that is within a few feet of a paved road or sidewalk.
Park in Dinosaur, Colorado
Dinosaur, Colorado, population 339, is in a dry area, even for the Western United States. I threw out my spleeping bag next to the swings in a little park. The woman at the convenience store said it was okay and told me that there was a shower in the restroom that I could use.
