Four Corners Monument Aug 29, 2009
Opinions differ on this "sight". To me "Four Corners National Monument" is probably the only place I went to in the States I would definitely not visit again. Why? There is "nothing" special to see.

Pay three dollars and you get admission to the only point where the boundaries of four US states (Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico and Utah) hit each other. If you are interested in geographical points like that and like taking the famous "standing-in-four-states-in-one-moment" shots, then this place is a must-go I have to admit. Otherwise you may be disappointed.

There is a huge granite marker with an bronze disk that indicates the point of interest. Plus a platform for taking pictures. That's it. It is surrounded by small boothes where where local Navajo and Ute Indians sell handcrafted artwork and souvenirs. I found this stuff more interesting than the so called "point of interest" by the way.

Added the remote location "Four Corners" is a landmark you should only visit if you like "I have been there"-places and you know what to expect. In this case - go. Otherwise: pass by!

People are referring to this place as Four Corners National Monument. This name is not correct. It is Four Corners Monument as it is owned and managed by the Navajo Nation and is part of their Navajo Tribal Park System. If it was a National Monument, it would have to be managed by the US Government and created by a US President. This is not the case. It always has been owned and managed by the Navajo Nation. This is also true of the Monument Tribal Park on the borders of Arizona and Utah. These are not US National Park units.

Four Corners National Monument is the one and only place in the United States where four states meet. Arizona, Utah, New Mexico and Colorado meet at a point on the Navajo Indian Reservation. There is a small charge to enter the site and once you get in you will only find a small visitors center, restrooms, a fairly large concrete area where the marker is and a platform from which you can take pictures of family or friends as they stand on the spot and are truly in four states at once. Also, surrounding the area are about twenty or thirty craft booths where the Navajo bring and sell trinkets, including pottery, rugs, jewelry, art, and souvenirs. We spent at least an hour or two here taking in the site. I recommend a stop here on any visit through the area. At least once.

Hi X_Drive,

I visited this place, too.
What did I expect? I do not know. Nothing special. And to me it was nothing special. It is a classical "I was there" sight. We left after ten minutes.
I would not recommend to go there.
