Isolation

Hiked Isolation on 10/14/14 with Mike Lynch. This was peak number 512 for “The Grid over 60”. It was a fairly warm and humid day so there was a lot of sweating involved. Once we reached the height of land on the Rocky Branch trail we took the Engine Hill bushwack which eliminates 2 major stream crossings and about a mile of trail. The bushwack goes through several beautiful birch glades.

There was also a lot of evidence of bear and moose activity on the bushwack.

Once we reached the summit it was quite a bit clearer than was forecast and hardly any winds.

We returned to the parking lot by the same route. Only 64 peaks left to finish “The Grid over 60”.
