You Can Stand In 4 Different States At Once When You Visit This Wild Utah Spot
No, it's not a secret portal... but it's just as cool.
It's not possible to be in several places at once, but now you can achieve the impossible (unless you have a time machine). The Four Corners Monument in Utah lets you stand in four states at the same time. A bronze marker notates where Arizona, Utah, New Mexico, and Colorado meet, and you can sit, lay, jump or cartwheel through four states faster than a time machine would allow for.
Stopping at the only place in the U.S. where four states connect is the ultimate way to stretch your budget and your gas mileage.
Four Corners Monument in Utah is a great way to branch out from natural wonders and incorporate some history, as well as entirely different states, into the excursion.
Local Native Americans own the lands around the monument, and you can learn all about their backgrounds and relation to the area, as well as purchaseitems from local artists.
You can delve into the history behind the plaque itself, which at one point was only a piece of concrete to mark the demarcation of the four corners.
The original was created in 1912 when the states finally agreed upon border negotiations.
In 1992, the bronze marker replaced the concrete one and continues to be a popular stop for anyone visiting.
Entry to thecosts between $5 - $10 depending on the time of year. What could be cooler than snapping some seriously epic photos with your foot in multiple settings at once?
We think Rick and Morty would be impressed with this little adventure, and there's no need for portals or flying spaceships.
You can visit year-round, except on specific national holidays.
From there, it's an easy drive to Monument Vally or many other must-sees, so you can enjoy your state-hoppingbefore exploring more of the Beehive State.
