Step Into the Four Corners Monument

Four Corners Monument

A lot of people talked about Four Corners Monument. It is a unique landmark where four states in the U.S. intersect at one point: Arizona, Utah, Colorado, and New Mexico.

At this monument, you can stand in 2 states and put your hands in the other 2 states. So you’re in 4 states at the same time. Cool, right?

But Four Corners Monument is in the remote area. There’s nothing else you will do or see around it. After taking pictures, you can just leave for your next destination. I don’t suggest you make a special trip there unless you’re already in the area. Like us, we were on our way to Cortez, Colorado from Paige, AZ. So we swing by.

We stopped there in June and the line was long. Apparently, every family wanted to make their memorable picture at this location. We didn’t make a crazy picture though. Besides the long line, it was also hot.

After taking pictures, we strolled around the landmark, where vendors selling handmade jewelry, crafts, and traditional Navajo foods. But personally, I think their prices were too high.

Since Four Corners Monument is in Navajo Nation, they won’t accept your National Park Pass. And we were shocked to find the entry was per person. It was $5.00 while ages 6 and younger free.

For me, Four Corners Monument more to ‘been there done that’ kind of place when you explore the Southwest region. It is located 6 miles north of Teec Nos Pos, Arizona and approximately 19 miles south from Cortez, CO. Your GPS will direct you to this place.

Tips:

– It’s on Navajo Nation. They don’t except your America the Beautiful National Park Pass.

– It’s in a remote area; bring water and snacks.

– Remember! The entry fee is per person.
