How Far From Cambria Pines to ...

We spend a lot of time looking through Gazetteers that were published in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Many of the Gazetteers include the distance from a community such as Cambria Pines to various places of note, such as the White House.

With a nod to our favorite Gazetteers, the straight-line distance beginning in Cambria Pines and extending to:

  • Salt Lake City [Map], which is the Seat of Salt Lake County, lies just to the North Northwest.

  • The White House (Washington, DC [Map]) is 1,837 miles [2,956.4 km] to the East (E). If you could drive a straight line from Cambria Pines to White House, with an average speed<3>of 63 miles [101.4 km] per hour, it would take most of three days to make the trip. A comfortable walk of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour would take 105 days. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km] per hour would take 72 days.
  • The shortest distance<4> to Jerusalem (specifically the Temple Mount and the Dome of the Rock [Map]) is 7,003 miles [11,270.2 km] and it lies to the North Northeast (NNE).<5>

Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Cambria Pines) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Cambria Pines. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 40.6555, Longitude: -111.8091     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Cambria Pines have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
<2>The Find-a-Grave website is an excellent research tool with information about a cemetery's location and interments. They also offer a forum for their members which can provide additional help. More information about Find-a-Grave can be found on their website: findagrave.com.
<3>While we have tried to pick reasonable speeds, the rate of travel is very theoretical - obstacles like fences, hills, lakes, river crossings and rest stops have been ignored. When we say 'Days' of travel, we're assuming 8 hours of travel per day.
<4>The shortest line can be visualized by stretching a string on a Globe from Point A to Point B - this is known as a Great Circle Route. Where you might expect the shortest route from Cambria Pines to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.
<5>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Jerusalem is 331.85 degrees.
<6>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Mecca is 331.388 degrees.
<7>The calculated bearing (or angle) to the Vatican is 321.728 degrees.
