I ran the Lower Foothills Traverse on June 17th, 2022. I started this route at 5:02 AM and finished before noon that same morning. I wanted to start early because I knew the day would be heating up as it went on. Thankfully with the amount of rain we had this Spring many of the main creeks were full and I filtered my water through my Salomon flask. With regards to food, I packed everything I needed within my vest since I wanted to make this a fully unsupported effort. Overall, the day went really well and if it wasn't for the high number of creek crossings which kept me hydrated and cool the day could've been a lot more strenuous.
