F = Four Corners: A to Z Blog Challenge

 Four Corners is the only place in the United States where a person can stand in four different states at the same time: Arizona, Colorado, Utah and New Mexico. It is also a common area of the Navajo Nation, Hopi, Ute and Zuni.

 
"Four states here meet in freedom under God."
 
In the general area visitors can also visit the Grand Canyon, Mesa Verde National Park, Monument Valley, Petrified Forest, Painted Desert and Meteor Crater.
 
The area is an amazing contrast of cultures and scenery.

  4. Hi, Rita: So great to meet you in the A to Z challenge! I've spent a lot of time in all four of the states on the Four Corners, especially Colorado and New Mexico -- I've lived in both states. I drive through Utah and Arizona often when we go to California. Hubby was stationed there in Tucson for a while. We live in Wyoming now. Cheers!

    1. Hello. I was in Wyoming many years ago. Beautiful. I have family in Colorado and have also visited New Mexico and drive through Utah every year to visit my daughter in Washington State. We are so lucky to live in the West.

  5. I've been there. There were many vendors--Navajos I presume--selling jewelry and other things. I bought a fry bread taco and it was delicious. This is a fascinating part of the great United States.
