A group of Earth science students decided to take an adventurous camping trip, so
they rode bicycles to a New York State park that was located in an isolated area. They
traveled up a steep hill. When they reached the top, they looked at the landscapes and
noticed a lake at the bottom of the hill. They named it Hidden Lake. To the left of Hidden
Lake was a large field with a small stream. They decided to set up their campsite in the
field near Hidden Lake. To get to the field, they cycled down a very steep slope.
The map below shows the location of the bicycle trail and the students campsite. Points
P and Q
are reference points on the map.
State the evidence shown on the map that indicates that the area directly north of
Hidden Lake is relatively flat. 
State the general compass direction in which the stream is flowing. 
State how contour lines provide the evidence for determining this direction.
