Hills and Valleys

For a person 5’7″ standing on ground level, the horizon has a distance of about 3 miles.  If this person is standing on a hill 1000 feet high, the horizon’s distance is about 40 miles.  Can you tell how far I’ve hiked by how tiny Boise’s skyscrapers look?

(And yes, the hike began from a residence in the city!)
