The monument has since been renovated and now features a granite and brass pad that is decorated with flags from each state. Stand and take a photo at the crossroad. Or visit the demonstration center with Navajo artisans and pick up handmade jewelry and crafts. You'll have the opportunity to sample traditional Navajo food at nearby vendors.

I have to say the ride from Albuquerque is gorgeous. We went the back way through small towns and Pueblos. The monument is located in the land that God created. The views and lands are are amazing. There is a charge to enter the monument area. That’s where the wonder stops. It’s all dirt and only portapotties. The “ toilets” hadn’t been emptied or cleaned since Adam and Eve. Good thing there wasn’t a restaurant since I lost my appetite. Disgusting just isn’t descriptive enough. There is a time limit for standing in 4 states and taking pictures. The walls are filled with vendors who have t shirts and inexpensive souvenirs to beautiful high end jewelry and hand made native items. You don’t stay long but it’s worth the visit. Just be sure you won’t need a bathroom before you get there.
Definitely a place to stop and take some pictures so you can say you've been there. We went on a chilly, gloomy morning so there wasn't a lot of people. There are vendors with cool stuff too. Don't over think the technicalities of where the state lines actually are and just enjoy the only experience like this in the US.
