Comments
Comments: I broke trail through 4-8” of fresh powder that obscured the previous footpath in many areas, so I do apologize for the rather roundabout Bushwhack track. You’ll get where you’re going. Consider it the scenic route. Although the third man I met may have straightened it out, he knows where it’s supposed to go. I also inadvertently cut off the corner of Isolation Trail and David Path. Oops. Just remember, in the wise words of Obi-wan Kenobi, “Who’s more foolish, the fool, or the fool who follows him?” I guess the only trick is figuring out if the snowshoe track you are following was laid down by a fool.

I saw three other hikers on my way out, with nice big snowshoes, making for a nice path to walk out on. It is still soft, still needs snowshoes.
