Comments
Comments: Day started out in the fog, but ended clearing up nice. No outer layers most of the day. Ice and snow patches started at about 4300'. Most was avoidable, but some areas did slow us down heading in and back. Some postholing on the Davis Path. Lots of water on the both trails. Met 11 other people bagging Isolation today. All in all it was a great day to be out, but a long day.
