Our road trip from Colorado into Utah started with a visit to Dinosaur National Monument and the surrounding area of Jensen and Vernal. We had such a great time hiking around the National Monument, visiting the Quarry Exhibit Hall and the Utah Field House of Natural History State Park Museum in Vernal and learning about our ancient history.
The area has so much to offer from places to see dinosaur tracks and petroglyphs to great hiking trails, river rafting on the Green River and Yampa River, kayaking and swimming in the nearby reservoirs, camping and more. We loved vanlife in the Dinosaur area, we parked overnight at different spots and camped for a few days inside the Dinosaur National Monument and at Red Fleet State Park.

There are very few vegan/vegetarian-friendly dining options to be found in this area. We mostly cooked our own meals and ate out a couple times at the following restaurants:
