Comments
Comments: I chose Glen Boulder Trail to start because of all of the talk about the four water crossings on Isolation Trail and reports of "rivers" of cold, mountain water running along the trail. So, yeah, I chose to deal with elevation and the wind over water. Sure, it got muddy, with patches of snow, along the Davis Trail as soon as I passed Isolation Trail...but no big deal. "If" there was anything I could possibly regret on that hike was that instead of returning via Glen Boulder Trail, I chose to do some redlining and went up to Boott Spur. That might've been pushing my knees to their limit, considering that this was my first "long" hike of the year. Did. Not. Enjoy. Boott Spurr Trail. Especially since it was dark and the batteries of my headlamp were dying, so I had to use my spare flashlight that I had to hold while climbing down that endless trail.
