The Four Corners Monument marks the quadripoint in the Navajo Nation and Ute Mountain Tribal Lands in the Southwest United States where the states of Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico and Utah meet. It is located on the Colorado Plateau west of U.S. Highway 160, 40 miles southwest of Cortez, Colorado. It is centered at 36°59'56.31532?N, 109°02'42.62019?W. The point was originally declared by congress to be 37°N, 109°W, but an early surveying error misplaced the location. The US supreme court later ruled that the current location had become so standard that it should be officially recognized as the actual boundary between the four states.
