Comments
Comments: A moon sliver to start the hike. Sunrise just above Glen Boulder. Hardly a whisper of wind to start. Wind increased above Glen Boulder. Nice to be sheltered back in the trees between the Boulder and Davis Path Junction. Nice to get back below treeline on Davis Path. It was frisky but not enough to change the plan. Did get a bit of mud on boots between East Isolation and Isolation Spur. Not much has changed for mud conditions on that 0.9 mile stretch. Saw a few snow patches at elevation on Glen Boulder. Left spikes in car and not needed. At times the wind blowing clouds was a bit eerie and even majestic. Saw a total of 1 Grey Jay, on the skinny side, on Davis Path just below West Isolation on return and no 2 leggers until 2 woman when back Glen Boulder. It is rare to get a hike without a human encounter.
