I have arrived in Missoula! Today we went out to one of Boris' new KP maps at Pattee Canyon. This first bit was me setting the controls for a beginner's course for the rest of the squad to do, which I used as a warmup.
Middle distance while everyone else did the beginner's course. The terrain is a lot of fun - visible, runnable pine forest with some grasses and low bushes, and very manageable levels of steepness. Similar to some stuff in the Spokane area.

Paying homage at the Church of Fishtrap. I drew up a slightly claustrophobic control pick course with the simple goal of getting myself to orienteer quickly, because most of the orienteering I've done recently has been of the PNW-specific green and steep variety, which is a particular kind of physical challenge and not necessarily the most widely applicable training. Made an inexplicable mistake on 16, but overall a great time as always at Fishtrap. Even the weather was cooperative (i.e. pleasant temps).
