Notes from Eric: Photos taken during the Five State Poker Run. We only visit Colorado by heading on the road going north about a 1/2 mile east of Kenton, OK. It winds around the eastern side of the Black Mesa and to the area known as the Blacksmith Canyon. This is my favorite part of the ride. Once the road turns to the west for the most part, one side of the road in Colorado, the other side is Oklahoma. The punch stop here for the poker run is about 1/4 mile from the tri-state marker. Access is via a gravel road. I always make the run up this way to pay a visit. If you look closely in Google Earth, due north of the tri state corners is a dirt road that goes for some 325 yards to a small loop. This was the original surveyed marker location back in 1881.



While in the area one could also ride to the corner of New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas,
about 1.5 miles south of US-56/US-64/US-412 at the intersection of Feeder Road and Texas State Line Road.
