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

<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 Mono Road to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.
