Anyway, we decided to stop at the ruins just to check them out. It was really fascinating! It is an ongoing excavation site with a top notch visitor's center and beautifully maintained ruin displays. It was a very pleasant surprise and I think we all really enjoyed it. In fact, one of the rangers told us about another site that was in the opposite direction that we had intended to travel. We debated whether or not to go, but decided it could wait for another trip because we had a full day ahead of us.

|The weather was beautiful and the clear sky was amazing. It is a well maintained spot but not much to see or do.|
|There was a long line of people waiting to have their picture taken on the metal plate that marks the location|
where the 4 state meet. It moved fairly quickly.
|In the time that Leslie and her girls spent waiting in line, I followed Scott around and took his picture eating his burritos.|

I guess you could say our stops today were a good way to break up the monotony of driving from through New Mexico.
