<2>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance that begins in Colorado. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Colorado) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Colorado. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 63.1628, Longitude: -149.4358     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Colorado have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
