Apr 22, 2018 - 4 Corners Monument

Teec Nos Pos .. meaning "cottonwoods in a circle" named after cottonwood trees that formed a perfect circle was found on the land. Traveling west on Route 160 through Navajo countryside we stopped at Teec Nos Pos to visit the 4 Corners Monument.

Nov 10, 2016 - Four Corners Monument

There is a silly landmark near Cortez that I guess is a “must see”. The Four Corners Monument is on Indian land and is simply the intersection of Utah, Arizona, Colorado, and New Mexico. It is the only place in the US that has an intersecting border like this. Everyone gets a picture of themselves standing on all fours with feet and hands in 4 different states. Pretty silly!

Oct 17, 2012 - remembering Hillerman

Remembering Hillerman Today we left Farmington and headed for Canyon de Chelly, with a detour to see Four Corners Monument. We were in Navajo country all day, a land made famous to the rest of the world by their friend, Tony Hillerman. Tony Hillerman was a ’white man’ and an author, but his love for the Navajo people and for their traditions and culture was so evident in his writing that the nation named him “Friend of the Navajo People", an honor not often bestowed. Tony Hillerman wrote mystery novels, and his favorite theme was the...

Today we tried the Twin Rocks Café for breakfast and then drove to the Four Corners, where it’s the only place in the U.S. where four states meet. They are Colorado, Utah, Arizona and New Mexico. The Navajos own the land and charge $3 a person to enter. There are flea market type booths along two sides where crafts made by the locals are sold. They sell jewelry and other souvenirs from the area. Tonight we tried the other restaurant in town – The Cottonwood Steak House. We sat outside and it was a delightful evening. This is about all...
