Blue course at First Waters (up the hill from yesterday). Similar terrain to yesterday in the later part of the course (and similarly nasty vegetation - I had my worst cactus encounter of the week on the way to no 14).
The first few controls were a bit different though. Lots of little hills and re-entrants. I had problems on 2-3 where I left 2 too far to the south (misled I think by an easier route through the cactus), and found my self trying (and failing) to relocate to the south of 3. 5 I hit the reentrant too high up and turned the wrong way (but did see two javalinas!).
I was absolutely amazed to find 8 quickly, but then had problems around 10 (again the map wasn't detailed enough to show all the re-entrants). Then lots of cactus (and taking trails and the road where possible to avoid them) including the afore mentioned encounter on the way to no 14.
