Ok. Wow. I was kind of kidding but @regehr's comment got me thinking maybe it was that simple. This is also pretty simple... taken in Dec 2020.

This is the access to a famous quarry where a very famous dino was first found and which later served as the model for an even more famous movie. The dino was supposed to be named after the director of that movie for making a donation to the Utah paleontology dept. but since an amount couldn't be agreed on, that fell through. Name the quarry, the dino, and the movie. There is more significance here at the state level for extra credit. :)

I'm not going to have Internet for a few days, so someone else take it away. (The above is the Dalton Wells Quarry near Moab, the Dino is the Utahraptor, and the movie is of course Jurassic Park. It's the site of the new Utah state park.)

Dang.... I was actually going to guess that. Seriously. Oh well, trust my instincts next time.
