  1. A few days ago I was standing at the port of Anchorage in Anchorage Alaska. I work for the local power company here. I took a picture of Denali. . About 140 miles away. I asked my surveyors about the formulas to figure the curvature from Anchorage to Denali. . They could not. If I could see Denali at all. . Maybe I should only be able to see 3000 ft of it. I got a pic of literally the whole mountain. The curvature should be about 14000 ft. Is that correct. ? @actingnetworks @raapow
