How Far From Snow Lake 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 community such as Snow Lake to various places of note, such as the White House.

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

  • Arkansas City [Map], which is the Seat of Desha County, lies 32 miles [51.5 km] to the South Southwest. If you could walk a straight line from Snow Lake to Arkansas City, with an average speed<2> of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour, it would take most of two days to make the trip. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km] per hour would take just over a day.
  • Little Rock [Map], which is the State Capital of Arkansas, lies 84 miles [135.2 km] to the Northwest (NW). Driving, with an average speed of 63 miles [101.4 km] per hour, would take less than two hours, a buggy would take most of three days and walking would take 5 days.

Footnotes ...

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

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

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Snow Lake. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 34.0609, Longitude: -91.0232     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Snow Lake have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).

<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 Snow Lake to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.
