If you don't think Colorado is one of the Four Corners states, what four states do you think are?
If you are talking about places within an hour or two of the Four Corners, then Colorado wins because of Mesa Verde, and Arizona comes in second because of Monument Valley.
All four of the states have fun places to visit.
I set my own personal land speed record (with me driving) in Utah (and not at Bonneville) (with someone else driving was with a total nut in Berlin).
The stupidest drive I've ever made was in Colorado. I drove to the top of Pike's Peak after it had been raining. Ten feet of visibility from about halfway up, and the only way I knew where the edge was is that the fog was lighter over there. Other cars came down in the middle of the road, but I couldn't see their headlights until they were about fifteen feet away. When I got to the top they told us the road was closed, and we went down in a caravan behind a park ranger.
One of the prettiest drives I've taken was in Colorado from Durango to Silverton, and I still got to Silverton for breakfast before the train rolled in.
Another terrific drive is along the Vermilion Cliffs east of the North Rim toward Page in Arizona. That one I've done twice.
I guess I'm leaning toward Colorado, because I also drove the old road across the top of Rocky Mountains National Park. It is one lane, one way, and not in very good shape.
In New Mexico I visited a friend in Zuni and she took me to the mission that was being remodeled. We met the guy who was painting the murals inside. I think he was the son of the man who started it. His son was maybe two and hiding behind his leg. That was incredible.
Oh, and I first performed my Continental Divide ritual in Colorado.
In Arizona I went down in a Titan missle silo. And I saw the Thing?
In New Mexico I saw a lot of bats and a UFO museum. And I've spent the night in Tucumcari several times.
I guess I like all those states.
