Comments: Excellent day for these peaks. Trail was wet in many spots but temps and wind were ideal for hiking. it was nice chatting with the hiker on the last stretch of the Cohos trail. Congratulations!. i saw no one else until Isolation had some great conversation on the summit. It was also great chatting with a group hiking to Mt Isolation. Isolation West and the Dry River Trail definitely live up to there reputation as beautiful,wild and remote. The Dry River falls were astounding. Ended up staying at the shelter but did note a few stealth sites along the way. There was one other hiker in shelter.
