Route: Webster-Jackson Trail

While I had planned to do Mt. Pierce on this forecasted sunny afternoon, the increasing overcast pushed me to instead do Mt. Jackson.

The lower portion of the Webster-Jackson was somewhat muddy, though mostly snow and ice free. Above the Webster-Jackson split, the monorail started almost immediately. Fortunately, it was fairly firm.

Though overcast, the views from the summit were still fairly good. The scenery during the descent, however, was superior - the sunset colors from Bugle Cliff were tremendous!
