Before you read this post, let me first apologize for the awkward photos. We had been driving for hours (I believe we put 1,700 miles on our car just that weekend), and the sun was extremely bright — hence the tired, squinty looks. And with that disclaimer, let’s get to it.
We decided to check out Four Corners Monument while we were living in Arizona because some of B’s co-workers had mentioned the area. Plus, I really wanted to stand in Colorado, Utah, New Mexico and Arizona at the same time. Four states at once… that sounds dirty.
The monument area had picnic tables, benches, a stand selling fried bread, and Navajo vendors selling other handmade goods, and although the actual monument wasn’t that magnificent and the area was basically empty (aside from the random tourist), it was a fun experience. Plus, the drive was gorgeous! I can’t tell you how many times we pulled over on the side of the road for photos.
If you decide to make the trek, remember to bring cash for the admission fee. We never carry cash so when we were told the fee was $3 per person, we frantically searched our car. Luckily, we were allowed in for only $2.30 because this was all we could find in our glove compartment. I’m glad the woman was lenient because I really doubt there were any ATMs nearby. This place is basically in the middle of nowhere. Anyone remember it from Breaking Bad?
