Vernal, Utah is situated in northeastern Utah on US Highway 40 near the Wyoming and Colorado state lines.  It is the gateway to both Dinosaur National Monument, 20 miles east, and Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area, 35 miles north. The geology of the region makes it of interest to dinosaur lovers and geologists.

Vernal is bordered on the north by the Uinta Mountains, the largest east-west trending mountain range in the Western Hemisphere.  It is bordered on the south by the Book Cliff Mountains and Blue Mountain on the east.   Vernal itself lies in what is known as the Ashley Valley.

The nearest major airport is at Salt Lake City, Utah.  Driving time from Salt Lake City is approximately 3 hours (174 miles).  Commuter airlines fly into Vernal from Denver, Colorado.  Greyhound Bus Lines also travel to Vernal from Salt Lake City and Denver.   Driving time from Denver is approximately 5½ hours (324 Miles).  It is required that you arrive in Vernal the night prior to your expedition departure.  WE'LL SEE YOU ON THE RIVER!
