Comments
Comments: All trails were wet with puddling in some spots especially between Webster and Jackson and on spur trail up Mt Tom. Trail crews had cut up many large fallen trees although there were many fallen trees on the southerlyend of the Willey Range Trail. The remaining blow downs could be walked under, ducked under, straddled, or bypassed. Care had to be taken on descent of Mt Willey's south slope as wet rocks, roots, and water bars were slippery. There was mist and light rain through noon or so. The low clouds persisted all afternoon with sun making an appearance late in the day. Bunchberry and clintonia in bloom on many trails. The last of the Rhodora flowers were seen along the Webster Cliff Trail. Lady Slippers on the Avalon and Willey Range Trails. Hiked Webster and Jackson with Petch. Saw many other hikers on Jackson-Webster, Avalon, and A-Z trails.
