Comments
Comments: Great prestorm hike of Mt Isolation. This report probably won't be helpful after today but trails were super packed and travel was quick except EH bushwhack. I followed it as it was well packed but on return trip followed a hikers track for a bit which thankfully brought me much closer to the 3200 line. I was able to use just micros to this point and then snowshoes for remainder of hike.
