cliffs, high desert, sagebrush, mountain peaks, and rich valleys
there is no other place we can think of that offers such diverse
scenic beauty in one location. We offer the visual beauty
of one of mother nature's masterpieces combined with the forward-looking
vision of a progressive community. While the summer months
provide traditional southwestern temperatures, Vernal's location
in the valley provides an almost humidity-free season. Winter
typically brings snow, wrapping the valley in a white sheet
that heralds the holiday spirit. Split Mountain and Diamond
Mountain dominate the nearby horizon, and when covered with
springtime green, provide a spectacular visual experience.
Vernal is the county seat of Uintah County and is 170 miles
east of Salt Lake City and 330 miles west of Denver, Colorado.
Vernal is the home of the Utah Field House of Natural History
Museum State Park that attracts travelers from all over the
world to visit its many attractions, including Dinosaur Gardens.
Dinosaur National Monument, a scientific work in progress
has fossils still embedded in the rock and is an active paeleological
site. You and your family will discover and re-discover the
wondrous world these creatures once lived in millions of years
