Dinosaur National Monument Turns 100

Happy 100th birthday to Dinosaur National Monument! Originally created on October 4th, 1915 as a small preserve around a quarry of dinosaur bones in northeastern Utah, Teddy Roosevelt later expanded the monument to include the canyons of the Green and Yampa Rivers. I’m extremely fortunate to have enjoyed the monument and its canyons during eleven of its hundred years, and it remains one of my favorite places in the world.
