Join us as CROC returns to the Bend ice caves area, about 20 minutes from beautiful Bend Oregon.

The terrain is central Oregon high desert - fairly flat, with generally open sage and ponderosa pine forest. There are lots of interesting volcanic features, including sunken lava tube caves, small basalt rock outcrops, and overall fairly good runnability in almost every direction. There is a dense network of dirt roads and mountain bike trails, which we will do our very best to map correctly. :-) Elevation is about 4,500 feet. Mid September weather should be moderate (sunny with daytime temperatures in the 70's). Free primitive camping is allowed near the event area on the many US Forest Service side roads.

The map will be an enhanced USGS topographic map, scale 1:25,000, with 10 foot contours.
