Remote Forests

It’s been a few busy weekends. Sunday Feb 10th we had an orienteering event at Raven Rock, and Feb 17th was Birkhead Wilderness. Both are awesome parks.

The part of Raven Rock where most of the event happened had a lot of underbrush that made it near-impossible to run – but otherwise the course was very well chosen, with some awesome terrain features. The forest is South of Cape Fear, and the cliffs close to the river are very impressive.

Birkhead was a brand new course for Backwoods Orienteering, a bit far (close to the NC Zoo in Asheboro), but still a lot of fun. The forest is sprinkled with huge boulders, and controls were placed in a variety of features that made it less monotone than usual (where reentrants are the norm).
