A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Cruzville) to Point B.If you need the driving distance (or directions), we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Cruzville. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from CruzvilleOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Cruzville. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 33.8075, Longitude: -108.6651
