From Hwy. 40 in Jensen, Utah turn north on the Dinosaur Quarry highway and drive several miles to Dinosaur National Monument.
Split Mountain is the formation the Green River comes out of near the dinosaur quarry about 15 miles east of Vernal, Utah. There are two campgrounds by the river, hiking trails that wind through colorful sandstone formations, an old homestead called Josie's Cabin with hiking trails and interesting history, and endless beautiful country to explore on foot. Local wildlife includes elk, deer, turkeys, coyotes, mountain lions, and bobcats.
This shot was taken about half a mile from the road between the campgrounds and Josie's Cabin.
