Bugs
Bugs: Generally minimal. But I have to apologize to the 700-800 spiders who thought their brand spanking new webs were the hit of the town...not only did my face demolish them on the way up, but they were quick builders and I had to re-demolish them on the way back down.

Comments
Comments: A long out and back for the 48th...I was truly in Isolation for Isolation. No one from mile 0-17. The trails were what you'd expect after a summer of rain, most of it was either a running stream or a mud pit, so going was relatively slow. But the views were interesting with a morning orange/red sun and thick haze from the wildfires out west. The only other thought that keeps coming to mind is...Wow Stairs Mountain is kind of a major pain. It's the roughest 3400 footer I've come across so far.

Now on to the fun stuff.
