A public park can house a monument to the war dead or civic pride, or, as in Fruita, Colorado, it can have a dinosaur.
This part of the Colorado Plateau houses layers rich in dinosaur remains from the Jurassic. And so fake dinos abound. And amusingly, most of the fake dinos are neatly fenced in as if to keep the from escaping.
How did giant ferocious reptiles come to represent human childhood?
And what is behind those lovely hanging baskets in Vernal, Utah?
This might be slightly more realistic, as it is at the entrance of the incredible Dinosaur National Monument, an enormous quarry of fossilized bones.
