The changing of the seasons means a switch to fall hours at Dinosaur National Monument. According to Chief of Visitor Services Dan Johnson, tourism was up every month over the summer by 3 to 5 percent. “It wasn’t a huge jump like other parks across the nation for the National Park Centennial but that’s because we had our huge jump last year for our own big anniversary,” says Johnson. “Now we are in the mode of changing to fall hours, seasonal employees are leaving and there is a reduction in some services.” Campgrounds will be kept open as long as possible, probably through mid-October. Crews are also wrapping up projects from the busy summer season. This year crews worked on a lot of projects updating publications, signs and sites around the Monument.
