Headed up to North Park for some orienteering training. It was a brisk 25 when we started, but the sun was out and it felt a lot warmer than I was anticipating.
Course 1 (4.0 km)
Set out a small flag at each control location for Kevin to pick up later. Worked on contouring. I think I'm improving, but more practice is definitely good! Only mistake was on 14. I undershot at first, by a lot. There was way more green than was shown on the map so I went up to the trail and reattacked from there. Lots of fun!

Course 2 (4.3 km)
Picked up the flags that Kevin set out earlier. Never found 2. I think I was in the right spot. It was right next to a trail, so maybe someone picked it up? My legs didn't have much left on the uphills. Orienteering anywhere around here is quite the hill workout!
12 - Exited 11 in the correct direction. Thought I was going the wrong way so turned around. And then turned around again...silly. 14 - Not a very efficient route. 15 - I'm so tired of hills! 17 - Drifted too far W up the hill. 18 - Ran to the wrong bush.
Turned out to be a beautiful day to be out in the woods. Thanks to Mr. W for the course planning!
