If you want to walk from Mytown to Capital City, you go like this (assuming there are no shortcuts):

Mytown -> Little Village -> Capital City

or this:

Mytown -> Yourtown -> Capital City

The first path is (8 + 51) miles long and the second path is (6 + 37) miles long. Whichever one is shorter is the distance required.
