That is a really well-designed Yellow Course. Beaumont is a good place for setting Yellow and Orange level courses.

I agree on both counts, although the map makes it a bit more sketchy. The little bridge bewteen 2&3 isn't there (and that was a problem given how high the streams are right now), and the stream around 8 is completely different than what's on the map. Yaya spotted 8 from a long way off and I told her, "No that's not it, it's on the bend going the other way. Well, there was no bend going the other way, so we had to go back. Bill said he had the exact same exchange with Ben.

Frankly, I think Zoran phoned this one in. It's nowhere near the quality of work that he did down at Hawn. There are some really big contour features that aren't on the map at all and quite a few point features are off (including #14 on the Red course).
