Let's Try Again?


I guess the girl scouts have to go back and find the right spot.

According to readings by the National Geodetic Survey, the Four Corners marker showing the intersection of Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico and Utah is about 2.5 miles west of where it should be.

Update: Well, maybe not. Reading a bit deeper, it turns out both the original surveyors, the states, and congress knew the location was not exactly right and agreed on it because it was an easier spot to reach than the actual location. Deal signed by all makes it done. No need to to relocate, rebuild, or revisit.
