4COR_030531_09.JPG: Here's the Colorado flag with the empty Ute Mountain Indian flagpole
4COR_030531_12.JPG: Here's the marker in the middle
4COR_030531_16.JPG: Here are the Arizona/Navajo flags
4COR_030531_19.JPG: Here are the New Mexico/Navajo flags
4COR_030531_21.JPG: Here are the Utah/Navajo flags
4COR_030531_22.JPG: This was a fairly typical scene at Four Corners (the Indian Reservation spot where four states meet). People would stand in the middle, standing in all four states at once. This kid got to be a little annoying because he kept saying "I'm standing in four states at once!"
Wikipedia Description: Four Corners
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Four Corners is the survey point at the intersection of the four U.S. states of Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, and Arizona and the high desert plateau region surrounding that point in the southwestern United States. This is the only point in the United States where four states touch. Three of the four state corners are on the Navajo Indian Reservation. The fourth corner, Colorado, is on the Ute Mountain Indian Reservation.
The Four Corners Monument located there has a per person admission fee. Four Corners Monument is located at the coordinates [show location on an interactive map] 36°59'56.31532?N, 109°02'42.62019?W according to the U.S. National Geodetic Survey. US Highway 160 runs nearby while New Mexico State Road 597 serves as access road to the monument.
Because the Four Corners is part of a high Colorado Plateau, it is often a center for weather systems, which stabilize on the plateau, then proceed eastward toward the central and mountain states. This weather system creates snow and rainfall on the central part of the USA.
Four Corners was parodied in an episode of The Simpsons, when the Simpson family visits Five Corners.
Four Corners Monument
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Four Corners Monument marks the quadripoint in the Navajo Nation and Ute Mountain Tribal Lands in the Southwest United States where the states of Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico and Utah meet.
It is located on the Colorado Plateau west of U.S. Highway 160, 40 miles southwest of Cortez, Colorado. It is centered at [show location on an interactive map] 36°59'56.31532?N, 109°02'42.62019?W. The point was originally declared by congress to be 37°N, 109°W, but an early surveying error misplaced the location. The US Supreme Court later ruled that the current location had become so standard that it should be officially recognized as the actual boundary between the four states.

2003 photos: Equipment this year: I decided my Epson digital camera wasn't quite enough for what I wanted. Since I already had Compact Flash chips for it, I had to find another camera which used CF chips. That brought me to buy the Fujifilm S602 Zoom in March 2003. A great digital camera, I used it exclusively for an entire year.
Trips this year: Three-week trip this year out west, mostly in Utah.
Number of photos taken this year: 68,000.
