More mapping at Mount MacPherson. Mapped further up the hillside up to the Main Loop (in winter) and currently a road on the west edge of the map, a distinct vegetation boundary on the north, and a major creek on the south. I have mapped up to the edge of about 300m of private land which is between the current map and the nordic centre lodge. The unfortunate part is that I have no contour data for that section, so will have to draw it manually, so decided to leave that for another day. If we ever host a major event on this map (which we totally should!), we will want to map this little chunk (the forest looks decent) just to connect nicely with the Stadium and parking area.
Off camping in New Denver starting tomorrow, so will be quiet on the log for the next while.

Mapping at Mount MacPherson. Finished off the complex contour area, mapped an open hillside with a bit of rock and a number of contours and ridges with a few trails. Somewhat reminiscent of the Black Magic map in Whistler.
Spent (literally) all day working on a new map in Kamloops around the hospital, a bunch of government buildings, a park around a creek, and a steep hillside park. Some pretty cool shaped buildings, looks like decent sprint terrain, probably the third best that Kamloops has after TRU and Valleyview Bike Park.

Mapping in Mount MacPherson. The area I was in is actually way more open and interesting than I thought it was going to be based on the Kartapaullatin. Nice open forest for a most of it (except a really thick, buggy marsh), and a decent sized area of complex contour detail that I'm struggled with a bit, still more of that the next time I come out.
