Mapping in Revelstoke at Mount MacPherson. Gonna be out here for the next week of so (except for Sage Stomp...), but event next weekend which I only started the map for today... not exactly great planning, but so it goes.
Absolutely love this terrain! It simply does not get better than this, open forest, rock features (so many cliffs!), water, cool contour stuff, a bit of thicker vegetation in places to spice things up, and a trail network of varying density which is great for all course difficulties. So much fun.
Anyways, if you are around that weekend (the event is Sunday), it is totally worth coming out.
Setting out and picking up flags for the POLE class for their orienteering classes. Some of them really got it and enjoyed it. One kid who moved here from Victoria has actually done it with the cadet program out there. Seen an SI and everything.

Walking through the woods on a line following the beginner trail route up in larch hills. Looks like we should be able to make the trail work.
Wild Soles running race in Park Hill. Wet and pouring rain, but lots of fun. Alexander was going to beat me, but about 1km in he took a wrong turn and did an extra 3-4 minutes. So, I crossed the line first, but didn't really deserve it. Weak field tonight too. No Thomas, James or Seth.
