Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Zenda) 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 Zenda. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from ZendaOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Zenda.
