Comments: Rocky Branch, Engine Hill Whack, Iso Express Whack, Davis Path

Carried snowshoes because we expected powder and drifting snow with the winds yesterday, but they ended up going for the ride. Light snow on the Rocky Branch Trail with some running water. Lots of snow along the bushwhacks, but we got by with spikes/bareboots. The snow was deepest on the Davis Path below the peak. Lots of drifting. Windy on the summit and we were getting pushed around, but our wind meter only read 35mph. Awesome hike with 3 other strong winter hikers. I broke 60% of the grid on this one.
