It was hot and I guzzled down the 3 liters I was carrying prematurely, leaving me dry for the last 40 minutes of my trek. I laid in the creek for 10 minutes in the 80+ degree heat. It felt great.
Total ascent for the day was 3600 feet. 12 miles on MTS, 6 miles on road, 18 miles total. Its great to be outdoors!
