The Four Corners Monument marks the point where New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado, and Utah all meet. It’s a rare geographical occurrence, and the only one of its kind in the USA.

The monument consists of a granite disk embedded with a smaller bronze disk around the point, surrounded by smaller, appropriately located state seals and flags representing both the states and tribal nations of the area. Circling the point, starting from Colorado, the disk reads with two words in each state “Here meet in freedom under God four states”

This quadripoint has become a popular tourist destination with many flocking to see it despite it’s remote and isolated location. Because the monument has become so highly commercialized, there is an entrance fee of $5 per person due at the gate.
