Flora and fauna: There are a lot of deer and bighorn sheep in the area. We haven’t seen any bears (yet) but they do tour through this area. The main hazards in most areas of the map are prickly pear cactus and wood ticks. The cactus can be quite painful if imbedded in your leg (or elsewhere) and leg protection is recommended. We made friends with many wood ticks during our exploration of the area although, fortunately, tick season is near its end.
Cattle and Fences: There are lots of cattle (with calves) in the area. Permission to use this area is given on the understanding that participants will do their very best to not spook or disturb these animals in any way. Please leave gates as you find them and when crossing fences pass under the lower wire or between the wires if the strands are loose enough. DO NOT CLIMB ON THE FENCE WIRES.

CONTROLS AND SCORING
There will be 45 controls placed for this event. Points will be allotted as follows:
* 25 controls (#71-#95) worth 40 points each
* 15 controls (#96-#110) worth 80 points each
* 5 controls (#111-#115) worth 120 points each
The highest score possible (getting all of the controls) is 2800 points. Within each point category the control numbers are based on the distance from the START area. The higher the control number the farther the control is from the START.
The SPORTident electronic punch system will be used in this event. Because there will be a mass start there will be no start punch but there will be a finish punch.
The late penalty for all events is 10 points per minute or part thereof.
The map is a detailed 1:15,000 orienteering map with 5 m contours. A couple of points to note:
* Water levels are much higher than when this map was made. Many areas shown as marshes are now water filled and most of the ponds and lakes are now larger than shown on the map.
* There are numerous fallen pine beetle killed trees within the map area and this pine beetle kill occurred after the map was made. Please keep this in mind when looking at map vegetation boundaries and tree locations.
Each participant or team must carry: a compass, a watch (or other time telling device), a whistle, a water container (there are no cups at the water stations), and clothing appropriate to the weather. Each participant is responsible for their own safety during this event. In case of emergency use your whistle to signal others (3 short blasts).
