The prevailing flatness of the Four Corners region is interrupted by several dozen jagged, black peaks, once the magma cores of ancient volcanoes, that have been left isolated long after the softer surrounding rock eroded away.
The area has been geologically dormant for approximately 30 million years and many of the peaks have themselves now been weathered down though those that remain provide a stark contrast to the surrounding red, sandy desert.
Some can be seen along US 160 east of Kayenta, AZ and southeast of Monument Valley, but the biggest is 7,178 foot Shiprock in New Mexico, 10 miles from the Arizona border, which rises 1,800 feet above the high plains of the Navajo Indian Reservation and is visible for up to 100 miles in some directions.
