Cornered! Four Corners Monument Temporarily Closed To Tourists

We noticed this article in the New York Times, and spared a thought for the tourists who'd driven hundreds of miles out of their way for the opportunity to stand on the only spot in the U.S.A. where four states intersect, only to find the monument fenced off and out of sight.

Since Southwest Colorado is Kathy's old neighborhood, we've crisscrossed the area over the years, but only made it into the monument once, a rather bleak spot with one or two stands run by the Navajos.

It's a geographical (or is that geo-political) oddity of sorts, but we'd be among the first to console the frustrated tourists with our opinion that they didn't really miss all that much.
