The Four Corners

There is only one place in the United States where four states intersect at just one point.

They are the wild west states of:

  • Utah
  • Colorado
  • New Mexico
  • Arizona

Its on a tiny plot of Navajo Indian reservation land east of Monument Valley and west of Mesa Verde NP, off Hwy 160.

The four corners came into being about 101 years ago when stubborn New Mexico and Arizona finally joined the union in January and February of 1912.

It is one of those out-of-the-way places folks stop while on their way to somewhere else. They take turns photographing each other in contorted positions making funny faces while they flail variously selected body parts across 4 different states.

Clothing optional, of course.

    The amusing part of Four Corners saga is that it a 2009 US Geological Survey discovered that the quadripoint monument was actually placed in the wrong location by a few thousand feet. However, legislatures acted quickly, and land was basically “ceded”—so that several decades of people’s “in-four-states-at-once” photographs would became “post-legitimate.” πŸ˜‰
