The Four Corners Area of the American Southwest

Four corners monument
At the Four Corners Monument

The Four Corners is famous because... you guessed it. Other than that, it's a beautiful but barren place. The corner point is actually on the Navajo Reservation and there are a number of concessions at the site because of all the traffic stopping by for the monument.

Most of the photos on this page are from the areas I drove through getting to the monument. There are more red rock photos on the Canyonlands National Park, Lake Powell and Colorado River pages.
