How Far From Little Red River to ...

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

With a nod to our favorite Gazetteers, the straight-line distance<1> beginning in Little Red River to:

  • Edmonton [Map], which is the Provincial Capital of Alberta, lies 338 miles [544 km] to the South (S). If you could drive a straight line from Little Red River to Edmonton, with an average speed<2>of 63 miles [101.4 km] per hour, it would take five to six hours to make the trip. A comfortable walk of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour would take 20 days. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km] per hour would take 14 days.
  • The National Capital at Parliament Hill (Ottawa, ON [Map]) is 1,852 miles [2,980.5 km] to the East Southeast (ESE). Driving would take most of three days, a buggy would take 73 days and walking would take 106 days.

<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.

<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 Little Red River to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.
