The AmericaJR Web Team recently visited the Four Corners Monument. It marks the quadripoint in the Southwestern United States where the states of Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah meet. It is the only point in the United States shared by four states, leading to this area’s being called the Four Corners region. The monument also marks the boundary between two semi-autonomous Native American governments, the Navajo Nation, which maintains the monument as a tourist attraction, and the Ute Mountain Ute Tribe Reservation. There is a small visitor center, some Navajo arts and craft booths, picnic tables and portable toilets.
The Four Corners Monument is located at NM-597, Teec Nos Pos, AZ 86514. Hours are longer during the summer season and shorter during the fall/winter. For more information, call (928) 208-2540 or visit http://navajonationparks.org/navajo-tribal-parks/four-corners-monument/
