Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Colorado's counties, including Montezuma, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>The location has been supplied by the Geographic Names Information System - which is maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.
<3>The full book title is Place Names in Colorado: Why 700 Communities were so named, 150 of Spanish or Indian origin. See our References and Mentions section for Arriola.
<4>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Arriola - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<5>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Arriola) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Arriola. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 37.4425, Longitude: -108.6462       In this case, the coordinates for Arriola have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
<6>While we're fans and frequent users of TripAdvisor, you should know that we're also members of the TripAdvisor affiliate program.
<7>An 'estimated' location is one where we have been given GPS coordinates, but are unable to verify the accuracy of those coordinates. That said, we have some confidence that we have placed the marker near the actual location. A typical reason for being unable to verify a location is that it might be on private property or maybe historic and gone without an obvious trace.
