TFTC. Pic to follow. Admission was $5 each. The fee taker shorted me a buck in change too. Not sure this cache or this tourist area was the best use of my time but I have always wanted to come here since I was little, on the east coast. A little anticlimactic.

An amazing monument. I don't think there even is a four corners point anywhere in Europe. Thanks for this cache!

Not sure why but I'm having trouble getting text or my photo to show up on this one.  Trying it without the copy and paste from my longer post.

We took a day trip from the hotel we were staying at in Pagosa Springs to visit this geocache. It was so much fun and we loved driving around. I just wish there had been more caches in the area for us to do. We were planning to cover a bit more distance and swing back down in AZ again but it was windy and getting windier all day. By the time we stopped a few places in UT there was a sand storm and the roads were getting hard to see. We decided that pushing on just wasn’t safe and we headed back to our hotel. My son thought it was so cool to stand in 4 states at once and he didn’t stop playing on the marker. He even tried to join in when another family started taking their pictures. I don’t think that at 4 ½ he really gets what states are or what he was doing but I had a blast watching him twist around imitating the others he saw. I hope you don’t mind if I post a picture of him instead of me. I was sure I had my husband take one, but I cannot find it and I have a feeling he didn’t push the button down hard enough again. Last time I had him take pictures he swore he took a dozen or more and there were only 2 on the camera. My son is much cuter anyway and I’ll be people would much rather see a picture of him. I just have to figure out how to attach it. This is the first caching I’m logging on this site.

Stopped by here while on a 2 week vacation from Alabama. Couldn't miss this place since we spent time in each of these four state. Thanks for setting up the cache.

Another one I am finally getting around to logging.  I remember each of the four states had it's own setup.  Being from Colorado, I was not impressed as we had only a small dropoff on our side.  Arizona was bare as well.  New Mexico had the best setup with many jewelry vendors.  We bought some great jewelry.  I also lived in Utah at one time, but had to laugh as the only thing set up on the Utah side was a long line of port-a-potties.
