Ascent Trip ReportMt. Isolation
What a gorgeous fall day it is! Since this is just a “one” peak hike today, Dad let me sleep in and so we are getting a late morning start! Dad wants to enjoy the fall day and said we should do the hike via the Glen Boulder trail – he didn’t exactly explain that we will actually hike up over 5000’ then go DOWN to get the 4’000 Mt. Isolation!
Mom, me and Dad started up the Glen Boulder trail at 11:10am. This trail just starts UP and just keeps on going. Dad and I got Mom over the tricky part where you pop out of the trees, but after she enjoyed the views for a few minutes, she said she didn’t want to go any higher. Dad and I were at the Glen Boulder at 12:55pm. The boulder scramble is kinda tricky but fun, and being able to see the mountain peaks on this wonderful fall day is really cool. After short ways of boulder scrambling past the Glen Boulder, we were back in the trees. It was pretty ‘flat’ and really quiet, kinda like a tunnel. But we made some pretty good time through there even though it was a little slippery.
We hit the Davis Path at 2:10pm. Now we start “down” several hundred feet! I thought being able to see all the Cairns lined up along the Davis Path looked really cool! You can see forever up here today.
We made it to Mt. Isolation at 3:45pm. We had some lunch and enjoyed the views. I was not excited when Dad pointed out where we needed to back UP to on our return trip. We didn’t stay long, cause we have a long hike back out, and because we started late, it looks like we will need our lights before we get back to the car.
All the uphill is over now, we reached Glenn Boulder trail at 5:45pm. Dad is trying to cheer me up with his “it’s all downhill” from here. But it isn’t working! We did have to get our head lights out just as we reentered the woods. Even with lights, coming down those steep sections is hard in the dark.
We got to the car at 7:40pm. It was indeed a beautiful day for a hike – but I’m not gonna sleep in anymore!
