How Far From Sisco 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 community such as Sisco to various places of note, such as the White House.

With a nod to our favorite Gazetteers, the straight-line distance<1> beginning in Sisco and extending to:

  • Everett [Map], which is the Seat of Snohomish County, lies 10 miles [16.1 km] to the South Southwest. If you could walk a straight line from Sisco to Everett, with an average speed<2> of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour, it would take four to five hours to make the trip. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km] per hour would take a little over three hours.
  • Olympia [Map], which is the State Capital of Washington, lies 83 miles [133.6 km] to the South Southwest (SSW). Driving, with an average speed of 63 miles [101.4 km] per hour, would take less than two hours, a buggy would take most of three days and walking would take 5 days.

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 drawn from Point A (ie- Sisco) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Sisco. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 48.1276, Longitude: -122.1371     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Sisco have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).

<2>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.

- Return to Citation

<3>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 Sisco to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.
