Teec Nos Pos Things to Do

  • A Foot in Each State?

    Four Corners is the only place in the US where four states meet at a single point.Apprently many people derive a considerable amount of innocent pleasure from placing each limb in a separate state. Bob didn't think of that, or else it was too cold, so he put his heels in two of the states and his toes in the other two.Our cars (1932 Plymouth and...

  • Four Corners Monument

    This is the only place in the United States where four states intersect at one point: Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado. The original marker erected in 1912 was a simple cement pad, but has since been redone in granite and brass. I have visited when I was five years old and do not remember it at all. Yet, to visit it again with my family was...

    The only way that I know of to get to Four Corners is by road. The monument that marks the meeting place of the four states can be accessed by a clearly marked short spur road from US160.

    It is in a Native American reservation.

    We were on our way from Kingman AZ to Mesa Verde. I took this picture of the 1932 Plymouth from the wheel of the VW bus - you can see the reflection of the wheel of the bus in the window.

    At present, a small entrance fee is made for visitors - a Dollar or two per car. Also there is now a small Native American market/trading post adjacent to the monument. I don't remember either of those things being there in 1966, but we were obviously here late in the day.

    Four Corners is in the middle of the Navajo reservation. This picture was taken from the car of a hogan in the Four Corners area. This is a very large reservation which has 18,119.2 square miles in Arizona.

    According to the Economic Development Research Program of Arizona University: "The Navajo refer to themselves as the Diné, or "the People". In 1868, a peace treaty was signed allowing the Navajo people to return to their homeland. Today, the Navajo Tribe represents the largest Indian Tribe in the U.S. and stretches across the high deserts and forests of the four corners region. Tourism has a significant role in the Navajo Tribe's economy, as it is home to natural wonders such as Canyon de Chelly and Rainbow Natural Bridge. The Navajo Nation is also home to Diné College, the first tribally controlled community college in the country. The college features a six story, hogan shaped cultural center."

    The main thing to do here is stand in line for a long period of time waiting for your chance to be in four states at once. While you are standing there the other people in line ar glaring at you wanting you to huury up and leave. You also have to walk a gauntlet of stalls selling souvenirs, jewelry, etc. There are probably not too many return visits to this site.

    When we were visiting, the lovely Dine Woman was quick to point out the Sleeping Beauty Mountain as she called it. She was like look, "The Chief is sleeping!" You have such a lovely view of the whole span of the mountian. It is said from the left is his head rest speading and you can almost see his arms the cross his chest, then as you pan down to the right you can see his knees and then his toes.

    I did some research and found this information:

    Towaoc is at the base of Sleeping Ute Mountain, which resembles a sleeping Indian with his headdress to the north. The legend is this was a Great Warrior God who helped fight against evil ones, and during the battle his feet formed the mountains and valleys. The Great Warrior God was wounded and while resting he fell into a deep sleep.

    He continues to care for his people. Blood from his wound became living water and rain clouds come from his pockets. The changing of his blankets bring the seasons: dark green, yellow and red, and white. http://www.ausbcomp.com/Redman/ute_mountain.htm

    It's a great story and one my oldest enjoyed.
