The Only Place

In the Southwest United States is the only place where four states touch in one place. The area is on the Navajo Indian Reservation so they operate the park that holds this monument. In the center of the monument is this survey marker. This is a truly unique place.

Now, a trivia question. What state has more states bordering it or touching it than any other? The answer in the next edition of Ozark Photos :)

Have a great weekend!

That's a neat spot and cool that you captured the marker. Some folks wouldn't think to do that.

My first thought for the state with the most bordering it was Tennessee, and after researching I found out I was right -- but only half right.

Missouri is in a tie with Tennessee, at 8 states bordering each. Pretty cool.

I was going to say Missouri but Mark beat me to it.
Fascinating 4 corners picture.

This is the spot I mentioned in a past comment!

As a kid in grade school, a photo of a kid standing on this spot in one of our Weekly Readers just totally captured my imagination.

Thanks for letting me see it again after all these years.

I was at the Four Corners monument this spring! They were preparing for the arrival of the Navajo Nation's President. He was going to film words of encouragement for Navajo soldiers in Iraq. Did you see any stray dogs?

I know that Tennessee was (one of) the answer to your question - I went to UT to get my geography degree :P

I was in Death Valley last fall; I should've mentioned that was an archived photo :)
