One of the unique trips Utah has to offer around dinosaurs, the Dinosaur Diamond Highway, will have visitors stop in the Uintah Basin before heading south to Moab.

The seven-day adventure will have dinosaur lovers starting in Salt Lake City before stopping in the Uintah Basin for three days and then heading south to the San Rafael Swell and Moab to end the Jurassic journey.

If you haven’t had enough of dinosaurs by the time you’ve gotten to Moab, you can head west to St. George and Parowan to take in more dinosaur sights.
