We left Holbrook, AZ to go to Montrose, CO for a planned visit to Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park. I drove over 400 miles, with a detour to the Four Corners Monument where the borders of Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico and Utah meet. Not much to see there.
Here’s one family posing for a photograph, with each person seated in one state.
The drive got really serious in Colorado between Cortez and Montrose, with many hairpin turns and a steady climb up the mountains. Fortunately the aspens were at their height of fall colors and I stopped a couple times so that we can take pictures.
