Though perhaps best-known for its cache of fossilized dinosaur remains, Dinosaur National Monument is so much more. There's rugged backcountry, wild rivers, and much history to soak in. But in summer, most folks who travel the corridors of the Green or Yampa rivers like to soak in the cool river waters...or challenge their skills in running the rapids.
