Comments
Comments: Lots of people today but given the weather it makes sense. Must of seen 20-30 people at the top of Isolation and many more along the path to Boott Spur and the boulder. Surprised by how much mud there was on the Isolation Spur and the 2-3 miles of the upper Rocky Branch. A lot of it was avoidable but it made for slow and wet going at times.
