How Far From Silver Beach to ...

We spend a lot of time looking through Gazetteers & Almanacs that were published in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Many of the Gazetteers include the distance from a village such as Silver Beach to various places of note, such as Parliament Hill.

With a nod to our favorite Gazetteers, the straight-line distance<1> beginning in Silver Beach to:

  • Edmonton [Map], which is the Provincial Capital of Alberta, lies 40 miles [64.4 km] to the North Northeast (NNE). If you could walk a straight line from Silver Beach to Edmonton, with an average speed<2> of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour, it would take over two days to make the trip. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km] per hour would take just about two full days.
  • The National Capital at Parliament Hill (Ottawa, ON [Map]) is 1,779 miles [2,863 km] to the East (E). Driving, with an average speed of 63 miles [101.4 km] per hour, would take most of three days, a buggy would take 70 days and walking would take 101 days.

Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance from Silver Beach. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Silver Beach) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Silver Beach. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Silver Beach

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Silver Beach. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 53.0333, Longitude: -113.9667     [Map].

<2>While we have tried to pick reasonable speeds, the rate of travel is very theoretical - obstacles like fences, hills, lakes, river crossings and rest stops have been ignored. When we say 'Days' of travel, we're assuming 8 hours of travel per day.

- Return to Citation

<3>The shortest line can be visualized by stretching a string on a Globe from Point A to Point B - this is known as a Great Circle Route. Where you might expect the shortest route from Silver Beach to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.

- Return to Citation

<4>The calculated bearing (or the angle) to Jerusalem is 334.194 degrees.

<5>The calculated bearing (or the angle) to Mecca is 335.132 degrees.
