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!

The 1000 piece would have been better

We worked the 500-piece Vernal. I love how ‘busy’ the photo is, as well as all of the colors. It’s those reasons I pick certain puzzles. But for this one I’d have to say that the 1000-piece puzzle might have been better, with the larger pieces, so some of the details would have been easier to see. I love Dowdle puzzles and have worked A LOT of them since I first discovered them at Costco many years ago.

I very much enjoyed this puzzle, however I was very disappointed when I finished and there were 4 pieces missing. I’m very careful and have a rug under my table, so have no idea where they could have gone.

Fun! Not super challenging but fun

THis is the perfect puzzle for my husband and myself. It was not super hard, but really fun. I love all of the different landmarks.

Fun to build!!!!!

I live in Vernal and have seen this puzzle displayed in a few businesses and the City Building, so we "recognize" a lot of the scenes, places and areas. I normally don't award the highest marks on a review, as I feel that there's always room for improvement, but I have nothing to be critical about. I'm not a puzzle person, but this wasn't very difficult to assemble. If you're looking for something very challenging, there's probably better choices, but if you want a fun, colorful puzzle, you can't go wrong. Again I'm not a puzzle person, but I think the pieces are of medium size, and would be ok for children as well. Have fun!!!!
