Colorado

Welcome to Colorado and a brief overview of The Centennial State.

Colorado, a Rocky Mountain State, is located in the western part of the 48 "conterminous" states. It is bordered on the north by Wyoming and a part of Nebraska. On the south Nebraska is bordered by New Mexico and Oklahoma. On the east is a part of Nebraska and Kansas. On the west, Colorado is bordered by Utah.

Four Corners The southwestern corner of Colorado touches the southeastern corner of Utah, the northeastern corner of Arizona, and the northwestern corner of New Mexico at "Four Corners". Four Corners is the only place in the United States where four states come together at one place. One can place each of their hands and feet in a different state at the same time. The Four Corners Monument is administered by the Navajo Nation Parks and Recreation Department. It was originally surveyed and established by United States Government Surveyors and Astronomers in 1868 with the survey of Colorado's southern boundary. In 1878, New Mexico's western boundary and Utah's eastern boundary were surveyed. In 1901, the northern boundary of Arizona was surveyed and, in 1912, a marker was placed where the four states intersect. A bronze disk embedded in granite was added to the Monument in 1992. The disk depicts the boundaries of each state radiating from the center with each of the state's official seals resting within the state's boundary.
