Vernal, Utah is a town filled with excitement of rodeos and recreational activities along with a rich history dating back to the Jurassic Era! Hence the nickname Utah’s “Dinosaur Land!” But it didn’t start off that way. Unlike many Utah cities, Latter-day Saints did not establish Vernal. After Brigham Young sent a scout party in 1861, they reported the land being good for nothing, leaving it untouched. Pardon Dodds–a retired Indian Reservation worker–would visit the valley from time to time, eventually loving it and establishing the first home here leading to its incorporation on December 28, 1897. Twelve years later in 1909, multiple dinosaur bones were found about 15 miles outside of the city, and almost 40 years later, oil was discovered, proving jobs for the residents here! Trust me, Vernal is one small town you don’t want to miss seeing, especially as you build this puzzle, discovering the secrets of Vernal, Utah along with Eric’s humor in folk art style!
