Naura   Leave a comment

Israel is a small country, and sometimes we feel that we’ve already discovered all the great orienteering terrain, and there’s nothing new left to explore. But last summer I discovered a gem while running the Gilbo’a single-track. A couple of weeks later I had a Lidar base map, and on Friday we held a low-key local event on the first part of the map of Naura.

The nice part of this terrain is the forested ravine that winds through, something quite rare in this country. The rest of the forest is also very nice and contains a few surprises in the small details. I really enjoyed the mapping, and planning the courses on such a tiny map was also a challenge (the long course is below). I used ISOM 2017 for the first time, but had no need of any of the new symbols.

Now I plan to continue the map to the north and west, and next year we’ll probably hold a larger event. I intend to do much more mapping this year than during the previous years, but I still haven’t decided on a major project after this one.
