Our next stop was Four Corners, the only place in the United States where four states meet.  The four corners in question consist of Utah, Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona.

The sign, of course The kids ..and the grandparents.
We then drove to Sunset Crater National Monument, about 12 miles north of Flagstaff, Arizona, where we camped in the Bonito Campground. Lynda writing down notes on the day's events. Later that evening, after the kids had had enough of riding their bicycles, we ate dinner.
The next morning we found a butterfly parked near our campsite. After breakfast, we toured the Lava Flow field of the Sunset Crater National Monument. Start of the trail loop.
In addition to lava, we found plenty of dead trees. See what I mean? The trail is mostly over the lava flow.
More trail.... Did I mention dead trees??
I found an old cave -- but it was closed except for the entrance. Does this tree look like a being from outer space? Posing by the alien tree.
While at Sunset Crater, we heard about a cave nearby that we could visit -- the Lava River Cave. The gang at the entrance, equipped with headlamps and warmer clothing (it was below freezing in the cave) Ice on the cave walls.
The boys in the cave... .. and the girls. Examining the frost (ice) on the walls.
After caving, while waiting for Lynda to cook dinner, Donovan showed off his biking skills.
After dinner, Lynda popped us some corn for a bedtime snack.
