<6>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- Ulysses) 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 Ulysses.
