Can't believe it is already September.

Packing Day.

Hiking 45:00 [1] 4.5 km (10:00 / km)

Walking around the beginner trail route up at Larch Hills flagging it and getting some more data. A couple of gorgeous 200-400 year old trees that we are diverting the trail around a little bit.

Silver Slope map finished. Named for the two Silver Mines further up the hill (not on the map, but could eventually be on a map expansion - but unlikely), and the fact that the entire map (except for maybe 1 single contour and about 3 formlines) is entirely one hillside. Map details over here. This was something of a speed map, about 3 hours tracing contours, roads, powerlines, etc. and then 6 hours of fieldwork. I think it would be a good idea to use this map instead of Park Hill or South Canoe for the fall series since those maps were already used this spring. Or maybe even swap out Coyote Park or Bastion/Sullivan to give those maps a rest for an entire year.

3 AM

Mapping 6:02:05 intensity: (4:00:00 @0) + (2:02:05 @1) 10.41 km (34:46 / km) +758m 25:29 / km

Mapping below the Silver Mine on Mount Ida. One of the nicest forests in Salmon Arm, about 60% legitimately white forest, 35% light green slash or light green, and only around 5% darker greens. Unfortunately, the map is steep, and relatively bland and featureless. When I finish up the drafting, borders, and what not I'll post the map tonight.

(rest day)

Spent all day today working on various map projects, and then the evening making jam (crab-apple jelly and plum jam).

Biking 54:32 [1] 9.22 km (5:55 / km) +165m 5:26 / km

Easy ride up/down logging roads along Wilson Creek above Roseberry with Lillian and Dad.

1 PM

Running 43:26 [1] 7.7 km (5:38 / km) +106m 5:17 / km

Run from New Denver up the highway to the Galena (Rail) Trail which I took back to Rosebery. Caught up with Lillian (who just did rail trail section), and ran with her until the beach at Rosebery. She walked straight back to the campground, while I did an extra loop.

Biking 1:55:00 intensity: (25:00 @0) + (1:00:00 @1) + (30:00 @2) 9.13 km (12:35 / km) +436m 10:10 / km

Biking a new trail near Nakusp called Songbird Loop. Not particularily enoyable, no flow at all to the trail. Hard slog uphill (not so bad), traverse across with no flow (awful), roughly burmed downhill (decent), wagon road back to start spot (fast).

10 AM

Biking 1:29:52 [1] 15.04 km (5:58 / km) +293m 5:27 / km

Climb from the top of Butter above Rosebery to a new adaptive mountain biking trail called The Spine. Came down that (very dusty), and then down Butter. Nice downhill riding.
2 PM

Running 1:02:39 [1] 8.21 km (7:38 / km) +475m 5:55 / km

While Dad, Lillian, Simon, Mr. Holmes and his son Jake, rode down the K and S and Galena from Sandon to New Denver, I started running at three forks and went up to the K and S (a bit of brisk walking on some of the steeper sections), then out and back to Payne Bluff, before on to Sandon to pick up the car.

Mapping 5:29:15 intensity: (4:29:15 @0) + (1:00:00 @1) 10.66 km (30:54 / km) +429m 25:43 / km

More mapping at Mount MacPherson. Mapped further up the hillside up to the Main Loop (in winter) and currently a road on the west edge of the map, a distinct vegetation boundary on the north, and a major creek on the south. I have mapped up to the edge of about 300m of private land which is between the current map and the nordic centre lodge. The unfortunate part is that I have no contour data for that section, so will have to draw it manually, so decided to leave that for another day. If we ever host a major event on this map (which we totally should!), we will want to map this little chunk (the forest looks decent) just to connect nicely with the Stadium and parking area.

Off camping in New Denver starting tomorrow, so will be quiet on the log for the next while.

Mapping 5:40:53 intensity: (4:40:53 @0) + (1:00:00 @1) 9.61 km (35:28 / km) +297m 30:43 / km

Mapping at Mount MacPherson. Finished off the complex contour area, mapped an open hillside with a bit of rock and a number of contours and ridges with a few trails. Somewhat reminiscent of the Black Magic map in Whistler.
