The monument that marks the only area in the U.S. where four states meet, is apparently in the wrong spot. The Four Corners monument marks the intersection where new Mexico, Colorado, Arizona, and Utah meet, and it's a popular tourist stop. But according to readings by the National Geodetic Survey, the real four corners is actually 2-point-5 miles east of the monument.
