I liked the page with the 3 color photos of "hazards" . Learned something new, as I've haven't been in the NW yet...

Thanks, that was the last page that I finished last night!

Nettles aren't really a PNW thing, but they are on both maps. We were fortunate that we had another cool spring, so the vegetation is several weeks behind schedule. I don't expect any nettles to be over the knee.

The Devil's Club are really weird looking. Since they aren't very "branchy" you can actually sneak through them ok, but just don't grab one!

The worst vegetation, by far, out here is Himalayan Blackberry. Yuck. Good thing you won't see much of that during the race.

Looks great, man I wish I was able to go there! Maybe I'll make it up to the NW this summer...

I just realized that the original Competitor Handbook didn't have the map of our Athletes' Village, so I just included that (it's on page 11).
