Comments
Comments: Rocky Branch some water/mud but mostly dry until you get to the top of the steep section. Then mud, water, running water, lots of rock hopping on the trail. Lots of water, snow & ice on Isolation. Lots of post holing, but still bare booted all the way until the last 1/10 ml to the summit. Then micros up & down very icy. Davis Path had a decent amount of snow/ice but
easy walking. Windy & cool at top but the views were spectacular! What a beautiful day, had summit to myself except for the Grey Jays who enjoyed some trail mix with me. Only saw 9 others out, what a day!!!
