Bugs
Bugs: too windy and cold.

Lost and Found: I lost a rubber end to my pole in the muck...so gone forever! 
 
Comments
Comments: Glad to have knocked this one off my list. #44! 12 mile hike. You literally have to climb about 1000ft above the summit of Isolation then go down to it, I can't recall another peak that you have to do this with, so fairly interesting. According to my phone's "sport tracker app" I had a ~5500ft ascent and descent total. Unfortunately the presi's were clouded in and pretty windy to boot. but still some good views. a friendly grayjay on the summit. Definitely liked Glen Boulder too.
I'll have to revisit this one on a better day to enjoy the views that were hinted at.
