First snow has fallen. It’s almost wintertime. But be fore we enter the heart of darkness, there are some nice sunny days waiting for you in Fruita, Colorado, home of some of the best mountain biking in the state, trail running too. It will still be warm during the days for a while yet and with an only 4 hour drive, it’s a winter destination that’s a lot closer than Moab. Today, though, I don’t want to talk about trails and runs and make a bunch of recommendations. Today, I just want to talk about dinosaurs. Or, actually, just show you pictures of them.
There was once a dinosaur, or dinosaurs, found in Fruita. Now the town can boast an art culture based around this interesting tidbit. It’s one of the fun and wonky things that endears you to a place and makes it unforgettable. Roll with it.
