You’ll find Carl’s Critter Garden beside Utah State Route 24, between Canyonlands and Capitol Reef National Parks. 

Although this attraction may not match the natural splendor of the neighboring parks, it’s certainly worth a stop. Inside is a vast collection of sculptures crafted from old cars and other recycled machinery. Many are dinosaur-themed, but there are also several depictions of humans and other animals, as well as many abstract works of art. The garden promotes, peace, love, and metal dinosaurs, and who could argue with that?
