Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Washington's counties, including Cowlitz, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Silver Lake - 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 Silver Lake). When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Silver Lake 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' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Silver Lake) 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 Silver Lake. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Silver LakeOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Silver Lake. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 46.3091, Longitude: -122.7621

While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.
