Southeast Colorado Corner - Tristate Marker For CO, KS and OK

The Southeast Corner of Colorado
If you know your geography, you are aware Colorado is shaped like a rectangle with four 90-degree corners. Have you ever wondered about those spots? On this page are my photos of the southeast corner, where Colorado meets with Kansas and Oklahoma. Oh yes, it is a grand spot. :)

The Tristate Point for Colorado, Kansas, and Oklahoma
CO KS OK Tristate Marker
The marker is positioned right on State Line Road, west of Elkhart, Kansas. Don't worry about being hit by a car though, for it's a quiet farm road with hardly any traffic.

SE Colorado Marker On the Kansas side is a metal monument. This is not the official marker.

    In our age of smartphones, do you really need directions? One peculiar aspect of this tristate marker is it tough to access directly from Colorado. The easiest way is to reach Elkhart, Kansas, and then work your way back west on State Line Road. One could also take Farm Road N0550 Rd. in Oklahoma which is a north-south route.

    SECOND PHOTO: It's the isolated plains on State Line Road. To the left was Oklahoma, to the right was Kansas. No matter what the state, it is awful and desolate. :o)


    Tristate markers are the bomb!
