Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Washington's counties, including Ferry, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Orient - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<3>ZIP Codes have been created by the United States Postal Service (USPS) as a way of grouping addresses to make delivery more efficient. The boundaries of the ZIP Code can be changed, re-assigned, eliminated or overlapped with other ZIP Codes. So keep in mind that any given ZIP Code is only 'loosely' associated with a community (such as Orient). When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Orient or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the United States Postal Service (USPS).
<4>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- Orient) 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 Orient. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from OrientOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Orient. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 48.8665, Longitude: -118.2039    
<5>If we have found a location and have questions about the accuracy of our information, we will simply say that the marker is 'in the vicinity'. We are not confident about the location and the position of our marker is only a rough guide. If we have too many doubts about the location, we will not include it in our database.
