In the United States, there are a whopping 65 points where three states converge, but if you want to stand in four states at once, you've gotta get to the Four Corners Monument: America's most stately selfie trap since 1912 or so!

Quadripoint of View

It's in Arizona! It's in Colorado! It's in New Mexico! It's in Utah! It's in all of them -- and in none of them! You see, in addition to splitting states, the Four Corners Monument is also a boundary between the Navajo Nation and the Ute Mountain Ute Tribe Reservation.

The Navajo Nation Parks and Recreation Department maintains the monument, which consists of a bronze disk bearing each state's seal embedded in a granite slab, surrounded on all sides by each respective state's and tribal nation's flags.

The monument is open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. from September through May, and 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. May through September. Admission costs $5 a head (cash only), but is free for kids 6 years old and younger.

Getting There

No matter where you're headed from, US Highway 160 is your ticket to the four-state fun. Just be patient. For reference, It's about a 7.5 hour drive from Denver via US Hwy 285 S and US-160 W.

Corner(s) Store(s)

The Four Corners Monument is in a remote area, so be sure to pack plenty of water and sunscreen. Food, jewelry, and other items can be purchased onsite, but the closest gas station is located six miles away in Teec Nos Pos, Arizona. From the Colorado side, the closest lodging is about 40 miles away in Cortez. If you'd like to stay as close as possible to the monument, your best option is one of the nearby campsites.
