That looks tough. Blue mountain was way more runnable and fast. Was that 1:10,000?

The Lake George map is 1:10,000. The woods were nice (pine forest similar to Blue Mountain) -- but given the steepness in some places, the ~8,000' elevation, and my fitness level right now, I was on the struggle bus.

I'm definitely planning to go back soon for the other two Lake George loops, and the third loop at Blue Mountain.

Is there any way around Lake George without lots and lots of climbing??
I miss that place.

I miss all those places.

J-J, did you make any of these maps? I can see the bottom of a Blue Star Komplex logo on one of them, but the other details are cut off.

I drafted most of them. Florissant, Blue Mountain, Round Mountain... hmm. Not Saylor, not Manitou, not the one across the street from Manitou (I've never been on that one). Lake George I didn't draft originally, but I think I either redrafted it or was involved with converting it from a different CAD program into 0CAD. Is that everything out that way? I didn't have anything to do with the maps in Buena Vista. I think I did redrafting or something for Fox Run and Black Forest, and maybe also that one in the center of town that I forget what it's called... Palmer Park?. Maybe the one at the Academy as well? And some tiny place that Steve Willman and I fieldchecked that I also forget the name of, close to town and triangular. Anything else around Colorado Springs I don't think I was involved with.

That's a lot of maps -- all good ones. :-)

Mostly good ones. I was never all that excited about Palmer Park. And the tiny triangular one was no great shakes. I don't know if it ever got used for orienteering, it was funded by some weird grant, I think. And I had to work with some municipal cartographer who was really skeptical about what we were doing.
