Each year hundreds of thousands of tourists visit the Four Corners marker, the only place in the U.S. where four states meet. People get on their hands and knees, positioning themselves so each arm and leg is in a separate corner of a concrete monument so they can have a photo taken of them in Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah all at once. The only problem is they’re not. A new survey by the National Geodetic Survey discovered that the actual location of the Four Corners is 2.5 miles from the marker. It also turns out that New Mexico isn’t new, nor is it in Mexico. At least the Grand Canyon is still grand.
