I like to see a picture of that.

In the area, Mesa Verde National Park is well worth the trip. Wayne

The monument itself is not much to look at, and recently it was determined to have been originally placed in the wrong spot! There isn't camping at the monument, but there are plenty of spots not too far away in SW Colorado or NW New Mexico. The interesting draw of Four Corners is the uniqueness - you can straddle 4 states at once. But do ensure you time your trip in the cooler weather & not mid-winter (blizzarding snow is not uncommon in that area in the winter). It doesn't get as hot in northern New Mexico in the summer as it does in the Imperial Valley of Southern California, but your trip would probably be more enjoyable arriving at the right time of year. FYI - if you are coming to New Mexico, the International Balloon Fiesta held in Albuquerque is a sight worth seeing. It's always held the first to second weekend of October.

Thanks, looking forward to the trip...

Get a copy of The Guide To National Parks Of the Southwest,, Published by Western National Parks Association and it will provide an excellent review of the 4 corners region. We have made trips through there in each of the last two years about 2 months each time and plan to go back again this spring. We have yet to see the exact monument though we have passed near by several times.
Highlites of a tour would be, Zion, Bryce, Capital reef, Canyon lands, Arches, Mesa Verd, El malpis, Petrified forest, Grand Canyon.
Not a summer trip, watch out for winds
