<2>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Albion - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.

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