    A friend from work and I hiked the whole Foothills trail a few years ago. Your post makes me want to get back out there again. We were hiking in the spring and it seemed like every day we would get to a spot where the guidebooks said here are some "winter views." One day I might get back there before the trees but on all the leaves and see what the views we missed were. We passed a lady walking the trail who said it was her 12th time doing the Foothills trail... Sounded like instead of family visits during the holidays she and her husband would just hit the trail!

    Looks like a great trip. The campsite on the West side of SC107 is where I stayed on my Dec '12 Thru of the FHT. Nice spot. The one across the road is another 4 miles past SC107.

    Loved that trail! My wife and I thru hiked it this year on Jan 15-19. 77 miles, 4 nights and 5 days. It was around 20 on three of the nights and one night on Round Mountain it got down to 5! I would definitely hike the trail again, thanks for sharing your story.
