June 8th ~ Four Corners Monument
Four Corners quadripoint, is where Utah, Colorado, Arizona and New Mexico meet. It is the only point in the United States shared by four states.
We made a brief stop here on the long drive from Colorado back to Southern California.
The challenge is to get a body part into all four states at the same time. We witnessed clever contortionists place a hands in two states, and feet in two states, but Tim and I chose to each straddle two states while holding hands, creating a circle.
Then to change it up, Dick and Karen joined us so that we could each be standing in one of the four states. I am in Arizona, Tim in Utah, Dick in Colorado and Karen in New Mexico.
Ahhh, simple games, simple pleasures…
The rest of the drive was pretty stark, bleak, hot and dare I say, boring at times.
But there is still extreme beauty to be found if you take the time to look.
GRATITUDE MOMENT: Today I am grateful that Tim and I have such a comfortable easy flow in our relationship. Long hours spent together, sometimes watching mind numbing miles upon miles pass us by, can lead to moments of silence, pointing out an interesting vista, or diving off into one of many deep conversations that have led to us solving (almost) all of the worlds problems, lol.
