Four flying turkeys and one big coyote. The coyote was not flying, fyihttps://photos.app.goo.gl/vo9NkUfyjQaqZXFT8
Decided to try out an exercise we discussed on the team call with Lauri. I first drew my route (in Paint 3D) and then used Quickroute. Quite interesting to see where the two diverge. One immediate takeaway is that I realized when I was going off the line or making turns, but I usually underestimated just how far off I was going. Good stuff to reflect on.
I didn't push the pace at all, but again focused on making efficient micro route choices, which is particularly challenging here since there's so much blueberry hiding rocky ground (with bonus hidden holes in the rocky ground).
It looks like there's logging being done on much of the forest east of here. It may get close to this cool area, but from the markings I saw on a trees, it looks like this area will be spared.
Also interesting: where I started is the entrance to an approx 1.5m-high tunnel that runs under the mountain. You can look through and see daylight on the other end. And as you can see on the map, it looks like there are old railbeds running to the entrance. Perhaps the two entrances were to ensure air flow if there were a collapse? This area is just outside the limits of the coal deposit, so maybe an iron mine? I'd explore it, but yeah, kinda freaked out by an old tunnel through a mountain.
