Route: Webster-Jackson Trail

With uncooperative morning weather forecasted, we downsized our plans and headed to Mt. Jackson. The Webster Jackson Trail was in decent shape for snowshoeing. Reaching the cold, windy summit, we had limited views due to the clouds. The summit cone fortunately wasn't overly icy.

During the descent the clouds started to part, resulting in partly sunny skies.
