San Juan County includes the Utah section of the "4 Corners"

The county's western and southern boundaries lie deep within gorges carved by the Colorado and San Juan Rivers. Tributary canyons, cutting through rock layers of the surrounding deserts, have carved the land up with chasms, cliffs and plateaus. In the center of the county are Cedar Mesa, Comb Wash, and the Natural Bridges National Monument. Rising above all, the Blue (Abajo) Mountains rise to nearly 12,000 feet, covered with lush forests vividly contrasting the scenery below.
