'''Monticello''' is a cool haven in the midst of the [[Canyon Country]] region of [[Utah]]. Located at the base of the Blue Mountains (aka "Abajo" Mountains) in the center of San Juan County, Monticello typically has cooler weather than the surrounding desert. This makes it ideal for summer hiking, biking, horseback riding and motorsports and a delightful place to cross country ski or snowmobile in the winter. From the Blue Mountains you can see the Four Corners Region, consisting of [[Utah]], [[Arizona]], [[Colorado]], and [[New Mexico]].
