[RC] Ideal WEC Course - Lynn White

OK I'll bite on this.  The perfect WEC course would be in the Albion Range in 
Southern Idaho. Someone bought the old Normal School in Albion and is rehabbing 
it. That would be a great facility to use when it is complete.   There's a 
premier veterinary clinic in Albion.  The ride would go from Albion to Almo and 
back on a 100-mile loop, mostly on FS land.  Almo has the world famous "City of 
Rocks" and Historic Oregon trail and would be amazing to ride through.  There 
are high glacial lakes and since the range sits in southern Idaho a rider would 
get the impression of being on top of the world. Lots of good footing and 
two-tracks for the "race."  Lots of water and grass. Oldest 
sedimentary/metamorphic rocks on the planet...something for the geologists. 
Some rocky areas.  Easy access to out-vet checks too.  Of course, that silly 
12.3-hour time limit would HAVE to go.  It would be a tough technical course.
