NAOC - Middle - Salmon River Fish Hatchery. As others have noted the maps/terrain were excellent (surprisingly Mendonesque) and the courses did a good job of making you forget the area is really quite small. I ran this course quite conservatively considering the experience I have with this type of terrain. So no big booms, but no truly impressive legs. I overshot/pulled up early on #3, #4, and #13 and drifted way too close to the road from #7 to #8. (I apparently had trouble leaving #8 according to the GPS). Anyway, I think I am least proud of my finish. I totally missed the trail that was about 75m from #15 that would lead everyone in to the finish. Instead I took a direct line through the white then crossed the stream and went to the south side of the pond. Not a lot of time lost - but I was quite embarrassed to have to run against the grain for a short portion of the finish chute.
Great runs were posted by Pavel and Sergei and I think I wound up in 4th place in the M35+ group.
