What a wonderful place Dinosaur Monument is. We are continuously awed by the beautiful mountain scenery. The only drawback is the remoteness. In order to get on-line we have to drive 40 miles here to Vernal, UT. Our days off are Sat., Sun., Mon. and we generally make the trip every weekend. Diesel fuel has come down to 2.99 from 3.45 when we first arrived so that helps some.Here is Teddy pointing out some of the topographical features of the park to some visitors. They have asked us to stay on into October so we might stay an extra week depending on the weather. If it turns to freezing conditions for very long though, we are out of here as I don't want to damage the water lines in the Cardinal. We had our first snow yesterday as you can see from this picture but it has now melted off except for the mountain tops.
...and here is a pict that Teddy took of ice on a cactus.
