Flatter part of the walk to start, from parking to the finish area. I should have jogged to make my start time but I couldn't move any faster.

The part of the walk to start from finish area to the start line. I was a bit late and missed my start time but they scheduled me for 10 minutes later which gave me a nice rest.

Whoa, was I tired. Made mistakes left and right in the kind of terrain I usually love (as far as detail)....except for all the deadfall to step over or around. Despite the 1:7500 map (like yesterday), I sometimes couldn't judge up from down, which bit me particularly hard from 4-5, where I managed to relocate only after stumbling on my #2.
Dutch Lake map, nominally 2.3km, 70m climb on a 1:7500 2.5m contour map. Sunny and probably about 60 or so when we started racing.
Mistakes to 2, 4, 5, 7, 11. A humbling day after two good navigation days for the sprint and long. About 20 minutes or so behind the top women on the course.
Still, as the only F60 competitor I swept the races and took home the gold medals and prize (a ceramic magnet that says Gold Rush [what they call the national events they host] 2017 and Play OutsIDe with the ID inside an outline of the state). Nice memento.
We took a different scenic route back to Boise via Ketchum, which took us down along the Sawtooth Range and near the source of the Salmon River which runs N past Stanley and then west, south to Riggins, and then west again to empty into the Snake (which flows into the Columbia and ultimately the Pacific Ocean). The pass we needed to cross after leaving the Salmon Rv behind was at ~8700', the highest elevation we've been at on this trip (not counting the plane rides).

Long course at Stanley-Trap Creek, 1:7500, 2.5m contours
Except for losing confidence on the way to 2 and misidentifying the dotted veg boundary, I navigated well given the terrain. Contours were mostly easy to read. The biggest issue was deadfall in much of the forest, which made things very slow.
Fell twice, once on the way to 1(!), poking a hole in my map and allowing some forest debris in, which looked like boulders, so I made sure to shake them out of the way as much as possible. :-)

Info at our cabin talked about a nice walk of a bit over a mile, to a meadow overlook of the Sawtooth Mtns. They didn't mention the climb.... (Edit: well apparently they did but I missed that tidbit.)
Our housemates had gone Friday evening after arriving in Stanley but we had an earlier lunch and were hungry so skipped it that day.
Beautiful views and lovely wild flowers along the way. Tired now!

Nominally 2.2 km Brown sprint at Boise State University. Conditions were great with temps around 65-70 at the start. When I finished the download line was long enough that I went to refreshments first to get water and Gatorade before getting back into the line.
I finished 24/42 on the course, seconds ahead of Leslie Minarik (F65) which feels good. I beat one of the F55s (but only 1). Missed a turn on the route to 11 and had to recover; AP gives me a 32-second error, which is probably about right.
Talked afterwards with Beatrice (mp! Oh no.), Sue HT, and Mary Jones. No sense in staying for awards, since I was the only person here in my age group (and Glen didn't want to pick up his).
Then we drove up-up-up into the mountains, ending up at around 6700' plus or minus at our cabin near Stanley. We'll head into town for dinner soon.

Walking (paved) 40:00 
In Lewiston, ID, along the dike/levee which holds back the Clearwater River, from a parking lot to where the Clearwater joins the Snake. Lewis and Clark camped along the opposite side of the Snake River from this location, in 1805 (near what's now the local transfer station, according to the Google map). We're staying in Clarkston, WA, which is on the west side of the Snake. The rivers make a T junction with the Clearwater being the upper right part of the top crossbar.

Green course at Riverside SP, Camp Seven Mile, on the west side of the Spokane River. Mid 70s and sunny when we started and low to mid 80s when we finished...hot.
Nominally 5.6 km with 165m of climb, about what I counted for climb on my route (not counting circling...). I can't believe I did an additional 3 km of circling plus route choice, so maybe they measured it wrong? EDIT: No, I measured 5.61km straight line....
Small error to 1 (overran it), and did some circling at 6, 7, 9, and 13.
Made it back. :-) There was cold water, cookies, and chips at finish...much appreciated. Thanks, EWOC!

Nominally 2.2km. About 85F and mostly sunny; hot but dry.
Searched a bit for 6 and 7. A bit N of 9 but corrected when I could see the gentle contour detail.
I don't have splits for this course because my brain wasn't in the right gear. After I punched one split I was thinking, "oh, I don't take splits in sprints," not remembering that we were using pin-punches and wouldn't have epunch results. D'oh!
I'll remember tomorrow (which is a regular course anyway).
