Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: All rock hoppable...we used the short BW to avoid the 2nd/3rd crossings, so only had to do 3 in total. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: This is for Andrew the trail maintainer we met on GB Trail - the blowdown you were asking about is about 1.25 miles in, just below the the rock scramble section. It's a small one. Thank you for all your work on the GB trail...it was in great shape!

Comments
Comments: Weather held out for the trip to Iso / No Iso. Cool temps and a breeze made for good hiking weather, although a bit chilly up above treeline. Some stiff winds ascending from the Boulder up to the Davis Path junction made us pick up our pace a bit, especially on and above Slide Peak. Alpine flowers are out and always a treat to see. Saw a few snowflakes in the air around the Boulder, but then the clouds cleared for us and we got some great views ascending up to Davis Path junction. No spikes needed today with only a few very small snow patches left once back in the trees heading down Davis Path toward Iso; the usual wetness / mud on the last stretch heading up to Iso proper and on again on RB, most of which was avoidable by using the rotting log bridges, rocks, etc. A good day in the mountains!
