Africa

Description

Primary LZ.

Large hayfield surrounded by trees that has a smooth washout in it, starting from the south and widening and deepening to the north. Exit the field to the southwest, not through the mowed yard by the pond on the northwest end of the field.

It has been called “Africa” since a fundraiser for victims of an African drought was held there years ago.
