The Four Corners


This is what you do at the Four Corners: You pay $3 to the Navajo Nation and then wait in line to stand on the supposed borders of all Utah, Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona. I'm not really sure what the draw is...yet I 'm pretty sure it was my idea. Today it was also about 100 degrees, which makes border straddling and fry bread a bit less interesting.

And this is Ute Mountain, my favorite photograph of the day. It was also very hot, which may explain the beer bottles.





From the Four Corners area, we drove east into Colorado through Pagosa Springs, where we saw this double rainbow (perhaps visible if you squint). We're attending the Crestone Energy Fair in Colorado the rest of the weekend learning about small community energy systems, building with straw bale, and little homes.
