But this place was swarming with Native American vendors which totally turned me off. It's cool to be able to say that I've been here. But it really wasn't all the impressive. The drive here really took us way off course. My parents had fun; so I guess in the end it was worth the extra time.

We stopped at the Four Corners Monument on our way from Mesa Verde to the Grand Canyon, and it was WONDERFUL! We stopped around 9am, which was the perfect time to stop--it wasn't real busy yet. The only challenge is that the actual location where the four states intersect is the main point of interest, so you have to wait your turn to get pictures. However, the families that were there at the same time as us were polite and patient ... no one takes an overly-long time on the medallion and no one has a problem giving your family time to get pictures. There are also individual Navajo vendors that surround the perimeter of the monument--lots of handmade jewelry, pottery and souvenirs. Because the land is privately owned, there is a $3/person charge (children under 6 are free) but it was completely worth it. We were pulling a 36-foot 5th-wheel behind our truck and there was plenty of room to park. My main suggestion is to get there early: there were only two families waiting to take pictures when we got there, and by the time we left at 10:30a, there were at least 20 families lined up, waiting to get pictures at the medallion!

Funniest thing...the restrooms are port a potties that aren't so portable and do not lock. The signs are in English stating..please knock loudly, doors do not lock. Well people from all over the world stop in here so there are a lot of walking in on people in the good ole' honey bucket. Out in the middle of nowhere basically and don't expect a grand entrance. The monument itself is nice..a couple informational blocks are there and you have to stand in line and wait your turn for the photo op. Which is the the main idea of this place..it makes for a neat photo..you don't really have time to hang out in the 'states' because there are many people waiting to take a photo. It opens at 8am and closes at 8pm. If your near ..do stop in..its' worth the $3 entrance fee...but don't do like I did and spend half your day getting there. There was a Food Truck there selling Indian Tacos and some water/soda..didn't try the food though. Strolled the vendors..typical items you can find all over the area.

If you're heading west after visiting the spectacular Mesa Verde National Park, it would be a shame to miss the Four Corners Monument, which is less than a mile off the main road leading to Page and Lake Powell. True, the monument is no big deal, but it certainly was fun for our family of five. Read the official website and you'll see that the Navajos make no sweeping claims for this place. As other reviewers have written, it is what it is. We loved the fry bread, enjoyed looking at all the Indian handiwork and talking to the artisans, and tolerated the port-a-potties. (It's in the middle of the desert, for heaven's sake. Carry some tissue with you.) Considering the treatment the Dineh received from the American government in the 1800s and 1900s, I hardly think we can balk at paying $3 a person to get into one of their attractions.

This is an ok place, unique place, four states at one time. Nothing else around here, vendors are there selling local crafts, go, stand in four states at one time, can't do it anywhere else, then drive to see ship rock in New Mexico
