Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Colorado's counties, including Routt, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Clark - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<3>ZIP Codes have been created by the United States Postal Service (USPS) as a way of grouping addresses to make delivery more efficient. The boundaries of the ZIP Code can be changed, re-assigned, eliminated or overlapped with other ZIP Codes. So keep in mind that any given ZIP Code is only 'loosely' associated with a community (such as Clark). When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Clark or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the United States Postal Service (USPS).
<4>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Clark) 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 Clark. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from ClarkOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Clark. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 40.7068, Longitude: -106.9189    
<5>While we're fans and frequent users of TripAdvisor, you should know that we're also members of the TripAdvisor affiliate program.
<6>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.
