My only disappointment of the whole trip was four corners. My dad told us we had to go there, it was a bunch of shanties set up as shops. Dozens of them, selling trinkets, food, had to pay $20. a car to go in. The monument was just a raised platform with an American flag in the center of the map displaying the four corners.

They charge now for seeing the Four Corners Monument? Seriously?? I was raised near there, in Durango. I moved to Florida 25 years ago, but I don't recall ever paying to see the monument. It was the same gray slab you describe, and "shanties" is a good word to describe the vendors out there.

Rumor has it the monument might be off a couple feet. i'd get my money back if I were you! Smile

The money they charge is suppose to go toward an actual monument center. My dad says that when he went thru 4 corners they had dances every night May thru August. We asked about dances and apparently now they're only held twice a year. That is so sad, it would bring out more people. My dad said that there were easily 300+ people there watching every night, buying stuff, eating, etc.

I was just so disappointed.
