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 from Point A (ie- Pine Prairie) to Point B.Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Pine Prairie. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 48.0288, Longitude: -114.7054       In this case, the coordinates for Pine Prairie have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
<2>While we're fans and frequent users of TripAdvisor, you should know that we're also members of the TripAdvisor affiliate program.
