Recommended Equipment:  
Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: All were very doable. The one at the end of Jewell Tr. had a couple of logs that you could climb over. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: All trails in pretty good condition. Well, accept Davis Path from Boott Spur to Isolation Tr (east). Soft, deep snow still, post-holing, made for a slower trip, not to mention the many blow-overs. Most were perpendicular to the trail, but a couple fell over on the trail. They all seemed to be at that prefect height that it's hard to duck under with a pack, and to high to go over, top dense of an area to go around. The wet trails didn't help much with crawling under. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Only saw a couple of seasoned ones on the top of Washington. 
Bugs
Bugs: Not that bad. very few black flys out, but not bad. 
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: Found a bunch of trash along the way, mostly above treeline heading to Washington. :( 
 
Comments
Comments: I (Yukon) finished my 48 with Isolation Saturday night! I planned this trip as one that I wouldn't think most people would do. Adding in Washington on Sunday made for an amazing weekend. Thank you to the people who post trail reports here! It's made the adventure all that more easier and interesting! ----"I'm sitting on a rock somewhere in Virginia. I quit my job. All I do is walk all day. I should be lonely-and often I am-but something is very different. Something that has been eluding me for years has finally overtaken me. Contentment. I've been living life to fast. But now I'm traveling at two miles per hour, contentment has caught up with me."----by Paul Stutzman
