Kiss the tourist dollar goodbye!

Right honey, pack up the kids we are heading back to the Four Corners. Hands up who has a photo of themselves on all fours at the Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico and Utah border? Come on you know, the only place in the US where you can physically be in four different states at the same time.Even the Loon has a snap! Hmm, well I hate to break it to you, those damn US government surveyors got it a little wrong when they did their intial survey in 1868… hmm..seems about 2.5 miles wrong. Them photos of you in your album on all fours…Arizona people, just Arizona.
