The cool drive back to Cortez...

Last one!


We had another great day exploring. We drove about 40 miles from Cortez to see the Four Corners Monument.

The Four Corners Monument marks the quadripoint in the Southwest United States where the states of Colorado, Arizona, Utah and New Mexico meet — the only point in the United States where the boundaries of four states intersect.

The monument also marks the boundary between two semi-autonomous American Indian governments, the Navajo Nation, who maintains the monument as a tourist attraction, and the Ute Mountain Utes, whose reservation is located in Southwestern Colorado, south of the town of Cortez. It was really cool to be able to stand in four states at once. I got a picture of Jerry standing right in the middle.

They also had a lot of Native American made products surrounding the monument. The drive to the Four Corners was also unusual. Some of the rocks we saw looked like huge castles. Another great day in Colorado, check back later for more.
