Course Setter's Notes:
Flowers are out in force on both maps...Indian Paintbrush, Columbines, Lupines and more.
Camp Elim has myriad small reentrants on the sides of two long modest ridges in gentle terrain with quite open forest, recently thinned from already quite open.
Glen Aspen Ranch is a newish boy scout camp on a hillside above a creek, just northeast of Woodland Park, with a very old cabin, some fields, nice forest, some ridges and valleys on the hillside, plus some smaller reentrants, a scattering of rock features, mining pits, and springs, some now captive and harnessed for the camp.
