After a handful of last-minute changes, a group of 6 including myself (peak coordinator), Steve, Holly, Zac, Ed and Jim met up at Glen Boulder parking lot and were under way by 7:15. It was raining lightly for the first 30 mintues or so, but let up by Glen Boulder itself, which offered us some limited views to the south. By Slide Peak, the sun was shining through a few spots of blue sky, and Boott Spur was visible over the Gulf of Slides. Turning left on the Davis Path, we dropped back into the trees, which have been cleaned up nicely post-Irene. After a stop at North Isolation (Trailwrights), we regrouped at the Isolation Spur and were setting up the flag on the summit by 11:45. Steve and Holly brought a large container of cookies to share, and some of the 12-or-so visitors shared some treats with us as well (by us, mostly I mean the two dogs that came with us.) At 2PM, we broke down the flag and returned the same way. The trail was, remarkably, much less wet than on the way up.
We had a visit from the NHARNG UH-60 Blackhawk. See the Facebook Flags on the 48 group for more pictures.
