Distance and Midpoint
by: Antonice Morin
My road trip first begins in the Outer Banks of North Carolina, because I love the beach. I love swimming and just relaxing near the shore. Then I go to Nashville, Tennessee to see Centennial Park. I want to go to this place because I love to see how beautiful nature is and I want to walk around in the peaceful park. It has many places to sit down and relax and just enjoy the fresh air and the nature.
Outer Banks, NC is at the coordinate (850,450) and Nashville, Tennessee is at the coordinate (450,350).
The distance between these two places are 412.31 miles.
The midpoint where I will stop and get food and gas would be at the coordinate (650,400)
After being in Nashville, TN I then go off to Mississippi. In Mississippi I go and check out the Jackson Zoo. I go to check this out because I'm a big animal lover. I would love to go see the different kinds of animals down there and to learn about them as well.
Nashville, TN is at the coordinate (450,350) and Jackson, Mississippi is at the coordinate (400,200).
The distance between them is 158.11 miles.
The midpoint where I get gas and food would be at the coordinate (425,275).
From Mississippi, I go to Colorado which is a very long drive, but with many midpoints. In Colorado, I would like to visit Rocky Mountain National Park. I would like to go there to see the beautiful scenery and to go hiking. I would also like to look at the beautiful nature and to get a nice breath of fresh air.
The coordinate Jackson, Mississippi would be at the coordinate (400,200) and Estes Park, Colorado would be at the coordinate (900,650).
The distance between them would be 676.68 miles.
The three midpoints I had gathered were (200,50) and (100,50). The main midpoint would be (650,425).
From Colorado, I go to California. In California, I would visit Disneyland. It's crazy how they also have a Disneyland in California. I loved Disney as a kid, and I still do and it would be awesome to go take pictures with princesses and so many characters. I also love roller coasters so it would be really fun to ride the roller coasters there as well.
Estes Park, Colorado is at the coordinate (900,650) and Anaheim, California is at the coordinate (1350,500).
The distance between them is 474.34 miles.
The midpoint where I would get gas and food would be at the coordinate (1125,575).
The total distance I would have traveled would have been 1721.44 miles.
