Santa Clarita is Big....
Just how big is the city of Santa Clarita, and how far is it from 'civilization' (according to all the alienated youth on Tumblr)?
The city is approximately 145 square miles in size. From point A to point B? That's where it gets interesting.....
Santa Clarita is basically shaped like a triangle, as seen in the picture below, with the top angle being about 13 miles across, then 10 miles down to the bottom (Newhall) and 11 miles back to the beginning.
The 3 sides add up to a 32 mile long perimeter of Santa Clarita
This 2nd picture below shows that same outline of Santa Clarita placed over the western San Fernando Valley. It would stretch from Topanga Canyon Blvd. all the way to Lakeview Terrace, and to Ventura Blvd.
