As we travel, we like to pursue some of our interests (such as astronomy and bird watching).

When in Carole, we use the following websites to find information relevant to Carole and the surrounding area.

  • Astronomy & Satellites ...
    • Whether using binoculars, a small telescope or the naked-eye, the Heavens-Above website can help you to find your way around the night-time sky. In addition to detailed sky charts, their website will help you find planets, asteriods, comets, satellites and their tracks across the sky.

How Far From Carole 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 Carole to various places of note, such as the White House.

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

  • View Our List ...
    • Ogden, which is the Seat of Weber County and lies just to the North.
    • Salt Lake City, which is the State Capital of Utah, lies 28 miles [45.1 km]<1> to the south (S). If you could walk a straight line from Carole to Salt Lake City, with an average speed<4> of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour, it would take just about two full days to make the trip. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km] per hour would take just over a day.
    • The White House (Washington, DC) is 1,840 miles [2,961.2 km] to the east (E). Driving, with an average speed of 63 miles [101.4 km] per hour, would take most of three days, a buggy would take 72 days and walking would take 105 days.
    • The shortest distance<5> to Jerusalem (specifically the Temple Mount and the Dome of the Rock) is 6,975 miles [11,225.2 km] and it lies to the north northeast (NNE).<6>
    • The distance to the Great Mosque of Mecca (specifically the Ka'bah - or Kaaba ) is 7,744 miles [12,462.8 km] and it lies to the north northeast (NNE).<7>
    • The distance to Saint Peter's Basilica (The Vatican) is 5,726 miles [9,215.1 km] and it lies to the northeast (NE).<8>

Footnotes ...

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

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Carole. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 41.1652, Longitude: -111.9613       In this case, the coordinates for Carole have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
<2>The location has been supplied by the Geographic Names Information System - which is maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.
<3>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.
<4>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.
<5>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 Carole to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.
<6>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Jerusalem is 332.017 degrees.
<7>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Mecca is 331.63 degrees.
<8>The calculated bearing (or angle) to the Vatican is 321.778 degrees.
