How Far From Marriott-Slaterville to ...

We spend a lot of time looking through Gazetteers, Almanacs & Directories that were published in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Many of the Gazetteers include the distance from a city such as Marriott-Slaterville to various places of note, such as the White House.

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

  • Ogden, which is the Seat of Weber County, lies just to the East Southeast.
  • Salt Lake City, which is the State Capital of Utah, lies 35 miles [56.3 km]<1> to the South (S). If you could walk a straight line from Marriott-Slaterville to Salt Lake City, with an average speed<3> of 2.2 miles [3.5 km]<1> per hour, it would take most of two days to make the trip. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km]<1> per hour would take just about two full days.
  • The White House (Washington, DC) is 1,843 miles [2,966 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 6,971 miles [11,218.7 km]<1> 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 from Point A (ie- Marriott-Slaterville) 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 Marriott-Slaterville. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Marriott-Slaterville

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Marriott-Slaterville. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 41.2623, Longitude: -112.0374     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Marriott-Slaterville 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 Marriott-Slaterville 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 332.086 degrees.
<6>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Mecca is 331.719 degrees.
<7>The calculated bearing (or angle) to the Vatican is 321.816 degrees.
