Comments
Comments: In general, lots of dry boulders heading up Rocky Branch although we hit a lot of standing water once we stopped gaining elevation around 2,700. There was some rotten snow on Isolation Trail with frequent slipping and post-holing. Light traction probably wouldn't do you any good there, just careful stepping. Davis Path was mostly dry. We had some great views of the Presidential range and a nice breeze on the summit. Overall great day to finish up the NH48!
