Footnotes ...

A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Pennant) 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 Pennant. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from PennantOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Pennant. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 50.5333, Longitude: -108.2333

We are not confident about the location and the position of our marker is only a rough guide. If we have too many doubts about the location, we will not include it in our database.
