Four Corners National Monument

Four Corners National Monument

The perfect stop if you’re visiting Monument Valley, one of nature’s most extraordinary landscapes.

Stand in four states at once at Four Corners National Monument, where Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, and Colorado all meet. It is the only location in the United States where four states join like this. There is a small admission fee, visitor center and Native American artisans selling jewelry, crafts and traditional foods.
