The Four Corners region is a vast physiographic and geologic highland region located in the southwestern United States. The region includes much of southeastern Utah, southwestern Colorado, northwestern New Mexico, and northeastern Arizona. The boundaries of these four states intersect in a remote area of the Navajo Nation. The Four Corners gets its name from this quadripoint, which forms four right angles and is unique in that it is the only place in the United States where you can be in four states at the same time. The Four Corners Monument, one of several parks managed by Navajo Parks and Recreation, marks this distinctive landmark.
