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

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

  • View Our List ...
    • Castle Dale, which is the Seat of Emery County and lies just to the Northeast.
    • Salt Lake City, which is the State Capital of Utah, lies 119 miles [191.5 km]<1> to the north northwest (NNW). If you could drive a straight line from Clawson to Salt Lake City, with an average speed<7>of 63 miles [101.4 km] per hour, it would take about two hours to make the trip. A comfortable walk of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour would take 7 days. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km] per hour would take 5 days.
    • The White House (Washington, DC) is 1,816 miles [2,922.6 km] to the east (E). Driving would take most of three days, a buggy would take 71 days and walking would take 104 days.
    • The shortest distance<8> to Jerusalem (specifically the Temple Mount and the Dome of the Rock) is 7,077 miles [11,389.3 km] and it lies to the north northeast (NNE).<9>
    • The distance to the Great Mosque of Mecca (specifically the Ka'bah - or Kaaba ) is 7,844 miles [12,623.7 km] and it lies to the north northeast (NNE).<10>
    • The distance to Saint Peter's Basilica (The Vatican) is 5,808 miles [9,347.1 km] and it lies to the northeast (NE).<11>

Footnotes ...

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

If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Clawson. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Clawson

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Clawson. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 39.1363, Longitude: -111.0963       In this case, the coordinates for Clawson have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
<2>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Clawson, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<3>If we encounter the name of what might be a community, our methodology is to add that name to our Gazetteer as a placeholder. As we find more information about that community, it will be added to our Gazetteer.

Just as a reminder: Our definition of a community is rather broad and includes those places (or areas) where several families lived and had a name which identified that place. For example, you might hear somebody say that they are going over to Rock Creek to see Pete ... Rock Creek is just a gas station and a couple of homes at the crossroads. While it might not be on the map, everybody in the area knows it by that name.

Places of interest include buildings at a crossroad, several families clustered in a hollow or maybe the location of a way station. It also includes places like mines, lumber camps, ferry crossings, etc. The community might still exist, is now gone or only existed for just a short period of time.

Also keep in mind that Clawson could have been on the original document by mistake, misspelled, the original/alternate name of a community that we've listed elsewhere or was placed in the wrong county. Sometimes a post office or train station would have a different name than the community where it's located, so two names might be referring to the same community - we're working to straighten it all out.
<4>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.
<5>While we're fans and frequent users of TripAdvisor, you should know that we're also members of the TripAdvisor affiliate program.
<6>An 'estimated' location is one where we have been given GPS coordinates, but are unable to verify the accuracy of those coordinates. That said, we have some confidence that we have placed the marker near the actual location. A typical reason for being unable to verify a location is that it might be on private property or maybe historic and gone without an obvious trace.
<7>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.
<8>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 Clawson to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.
<9>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Jerusalem is 331.137 degrees.
<10>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Mecca is 330.413 degrees.
<11>The calculated bearing (or angle) to the Vatican is 321.422 degrees.
