<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Ekalaka) 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 Ekalaka. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from EkalakaOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Ekalaka. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 45.8894, Longitude: -104.5507       In this case, the coordinates for Ekalaka have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
