Both are large attractions in Colorado, although part of the Dinosaur Natl. Monument is in Utah as well. Both are in the high desert lands. One in Northwest Colorado, and the other in Southwest Colorado. Which do you prefer?

Dinosaur National Monument










Canyon of the Ancients National Monument

Canyon of the Ancients national Monument is incredible. Both are amazing, but I had to pick Canyon of the ancients.

Yeah, its beautiful. Both are very underrated when people talk about the national monuments and parks in the SW.
