My wife and I met Katherine and her mom back in Sept of 2009 when we were
passing through on the way to Pagosa Spgs. They were so nice to a couple of
belagaana strangers. Not long after that visit, I asked Katherine to make a
lapis lazuli necklace for my wife. It is a thing of beauty.We've not
been back for a long time, but we feel like we are no longer strangers.
This is interesting because recent surveys have said that the monument
isn't really at the four corners, but is over a mile off. (Like the fact
that the Statue of Liberty is really in New Jersey, not New York.) I
once asked a Native American there that was from Idaho how he was able to sell
on the Navajo Nation since he was from a different tribe and he said "I
married into it." "Sounds like a good way" I responded.
"That's the only way" he replied. Then we both had a good
laugh.Everyone ought to experience Four Corners at least once in
their life time.
