"Tiis nazbas"- Cottonwoods in a Circle

Around 1880, this community was given the name of Teec Nos Pos, meaning a natural circle of cottonwood trees. A trading post was first established there in 1905 by H.B. Noel. Supposely only today one tree survives. It is a small community located within the vast beautiful Dine'(Navajo) tribal lands. It is the gate way to the only four states that meet at the corners, Four Corners.

Four Corners Monument, Ut.

It is the only point in the United States shared by four states, leading to their being called the Four Corners region.

It is amazing that so many people do not realize that there are actually "Four Corners of the Unted States of America" that meet. So this place is very historic and unique place!

The Three Amiga's

Taken probably around 1965 and I do not remember...lol....visiting here then!

    I suppose the Sleeping Ute Mountain was named after the Ute Indian tribe. But in Germany Ute (pronounced with two syllables) is a fairly common women’s name. I have a friend named Ute so I’ll tell her about this mountain.

    I remember our guide telling us about where the 4 states met, but we didn't get taken there. I did bring a Navajo rug and some jewellery home for gifts though!

    Teec Nos Pos looks almost like Spain's Lanzarothe. Interesting to learn about Dine Handwoven Rugs. - Thank you for spending time on my Wittlich & Hoexter pages.

    First of all the name Teec Nos Pos intrigued me. The Dine' Handwoven Rugs look absolutely beautiful. I also have a small piece of sand art from our visit to this area.

    Sounds great, remote and lacking amenities. Ideal.
