Outdoor Activities ...

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

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

Before heading outdoors, you should check the weather:

The National Weather Service forecast for Casa Loma

Whether using binoculars, a small telescope or the naked-eye, the Heavens-Above website can help amateurs find their way around the night-time sky. In addition to detailed sky charts, their website lists the visible planets, asteriods, comets, satellites and their track across the sky.

To give accurate results, Heavens-Above requires the latitude and longitude of your location. As a starting point, when we link to Heavens-Above, we pass the location for Casa Loma. Once you're on the Heavens-Above website, you can improve accuracy by giving a more precise longitude and latitude for your actual position.

We enjoy finding new spots for bird watching and we use the eBird website to find local sighting reports and hotspots.

The eBird website is organized on a county-by-county basis. We have selected Davis County as the starting point when you click on the link below:

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

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

  • Farmington, which is the Seat of Davis County, lies just to the North Northwest.
  • Salt Lake City, which is the State Capital of Utah, lies 11 miles [17.7 km]<1> to the South (S). If you could walk a straight line from Casa Loma to Salt Lake City, with an average speed<3> of 2.2 miles [3.5 km]<1> per hour, it would take five to six hours to make the trip. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km]<1> per hour would take nearly four hours.
  • The White House (Washington, DC) is 1,838 miles [2,958 km]<1> to the East (E). Driving, with an average speed of 63 miles [101.4 km]<1> per hour, would take most of three days, a buggy would take 72 days and walking would take 105 days.
  • The shortest distance<4> to Jerusalem (specifically the Temple Mount and the Dome of the Rock) is 6,987 miles [11,244.5 km]<1> and it lies to the North Northeast (NNE).<5>
  • The distance to the Great Mosque of Mecca (specifically the Ka'bah - or Kaaba ) is 7,756 miles [12,482.1 km]<1> and it lies to the North Northeast (NNE).<6>
  • The distance to Saint Peter's Basilica (The Vatican) is 5,736 miles [9,231.2 km]<1> and it lies to the Northeast (NE).<7>

Footnotes ...

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

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Casa Loma. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 40.9330, Longitude: -111.8763     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Casa Loma 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 Casa Loma 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 331.929 degrees.
<6>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Mecca is 331.506 degrees.
<7>The calculated bearing (or angle) to the Vatican is 321.746 degrees.
