About us...

In the farthest Northwest corner of Colorado, sitting quietly beneath the looming Blue Mountain Range, amid golden fields, cattle ranches and sweeping vistas, you will find tiny Dinosaur, Colorado, home to only 339 residents. Here, one can close their eyes and easily imagine the prehistoric titans of long ago roaming the largely unchanged landscape, beneath a uniquely western sky.  The peacefulness of our historic, old west town, will fill your soul with longing for the past, respect for the present and an appetite for adventure! Read more
