Didn't really get outside today... just sat behind the computer and mapped. Finished off the Downtown Revelstoke Expansion (now out to the highway for almost 2km squared mapped, or larger than the size of the Canoe Creek map!), and finished Riverside Park in Kamloops with the fieldwork I did yesterday. Also started on a new map in Kamloops around the Hospitial and park on the hill behind it. It will be a climb intensive map, but has a bunch of interesting buildings, fences and walls on it. Will be good for their evening events.

Also looking at squeezing in a small lSSOM forest map in Salmon Arm on the north side of Mount Ida behind the Geirre's Fruit and Cherry farm. The hillside is crown land (with decent parking along a road) and nice open forest with a moderate trail network. There are a number of interesting re-entrants, the only problem is that the hillside is quite steep, but we need another map close to town in Salmon Arm. We are having to re-use maps that we used in the spring, and seem to be kind of running our maps into the ground with over-use. The problem is that there aren't many good (or even halfway decend) places left to map in Salmon Arm. There is the Haney Heritage house, which would be a small map, but I think permissions would be a nightmare every time we used it if we managed to event get it once.
