Picture: Tourist family photos being taken by mom while kids stand at the center of the Four Corners Monument, on the Arizona, Utah, New Mexico, and Colorado borders.
I just heard this on the news… It could only have happened in the days before GPS. Yes, I’ve been there. Yes, I now feel ripped off and disappointed.
Apparently, the Four Corners Monument ISN’T on the border of the four states as everyone had thought. The Arizona Daily Star is now reporting the marker is “misplaced” by 2.5 miles. Doh!
But we must consider, like an April Fools Day Joke, that today is April 20th, or as it’s more commonly known by the youth and aging hippies, 420 day. 420 refers to Marijuana. Perhaps the people that were calculating where the marker should be were a little, um… stoned?
Anyway, talk about a major Faux Paux. That’s like carving a fifth face on Mount Rushmore, only to find out on unveiling day that the workers carved Robert Kennedy, and not John F. Kennedy. – Whoops.
