Looking down the Webster-Jackson Trail
Route: Webster-Jackson Trail
With the wet weather moving back in, I decided to head up to Jackson during a brief break in the rain. While I started under blue skies, clouds followed me up the mountain. The folliage on the lower portion of the trail was quite colorful.
Reaching the summit, I had views in all directions - and dark clouds in all directions. In fact, it appeared that the southern Presidentials were amongst the only peaks not being rained upon.
The headlamp went on shortly after the loop split. Fortunately, the rain held off until I was about .1 miles from the road.
