Salt Lake City (AP) - In an April 20 story about the location of the Four Corners marker, the Associated Press erroneously reported that the monument is 2.5 miles west of where it should be.

Instead, according to Dave Doyle of the National Geodetic Survey, the monument marking the intersection of Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico and Utah is about 1,807 feet east of where it should have been placed in 1875.

Doyle says the monument's location has been legally adopted by all the states as the official corner.
