Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Montana's counties, including Ravalli, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>The pronunciation we've provided is our attempt to give a phonetic pronunciation for Sula. While it might not be exactly right, hopefully it will be close. If we have it wrong or there's a better way to pronounce the name, please contact us through our Feedback Page.
<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Sula - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<4>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.

When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Sula or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the United States Postal Service (USPS).
<5>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Sula) 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 Sula. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from SulaOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Sula.
