We decided to take a two-hour round-trip detour from our planned route to visit the Four Corners Monument, but when we got there it was closed for construction. Several folk told us that the official marker is in the “wrong” place (it’s around 1800 feet away from where modern surveys would locate it), and that the reason for the construction was to move it (false, US law and the Supreme Court have decreed that its location is the official point). The real reason for the closure was to rebuild the visitors’ center.
Oh, and it re-opened just eight days after we were there.
