crawford notch/mt isolation/bartlett run in the white mountains - nov 23, 2006

got a great run in today with justin angle in the white mountains - 26 miles and 6,014 feet of gain in 7:22. starting in the cold just after 7am in crawford notch we headed up the crawford path, the oldest mountain trail in america. snow and ice covered the trail as we headed up up up to mizpah spring hut and then on to mount isolation - "Mount Isolation is as its name implies one of the most remote peaks in the White Mountains, located in the midst of the Presidential Range-Dry River Wilderness. It is one of the most remote and least-visited 4000-footers, one of a select few not visible from a public highway. The summit itself is bare with views in all directions, although most or all of the approach is wooded." from there we turned south and headed down our 15 mile trail hitting mt resolution and mt parker on our way to our drop car in bartlett, nh. great weather, amazing views and good times.
