Four Corners in Four Days

About four years ago (yikes! Time flies!) Phil and I did a six week roadtrip around the US. Of the 18 states we visited, by far my favorite section was Four Corners. Encompassing Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, and Utah, Four Corners is full of grand, scenic views and incredible hikes and parks. I recently took a trip to Colorado and my love for the area was reinvigorated.

We managed to do the Four Corners region in about four days. Though tight, it is just enough time to see the best the area has to offer. If you're looking for a long-weekend roadtrip showcasing some of the best parks the US has to offer, I highly recommend the following:
Mesa Verde National Park, Colorado
Mesa Verde National Park, Colorado
Mesa Verde National Park, Colorado
Dinosaur Tracks at Tuba City, New Mexico
North Rim of the Grand Canyon, Arizona
Zion National Park, Utah
Zion National Park, Utah
Zion National Park, Utah
Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah
Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah
Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah 
Day 1:
Mesa Verde, CO
Day 2:
Tuba City, NM
Grand Canyon, AZ
Day 3:
Zion, UT
Day 4:
Bryce Canyon, UT

There is much more to see in this part of the country, so keeping it to four days is tough! But this was the itinerary we went with, and I felt like we got just enough time in each place to feel satisfied. My personal favorite? Bryce Canyon. Absolutely gorgeous, plenty of easy + tough hikes, and beautiful views galore.

I'd love to do a longer version of this trip, with the addition of Black Canyon of the Gunnison park in Colorado, Antelope Canyon in Arizona, and Arches park in Utah.

Where's your favorite place to roadtrip to?

  1. Gorgeous photos! I haven't spent much time in Utah or New Mexico (and none in Colorado yet) but I do love Arizona and think it's the most gorgeous in our country. I need to go and visit all of the parks you've listed here that I haven't been to yet.
