Comments: The trail was real wet from rain the day before making water crossings difficult/dangerous. On the Webster-Jackson trail, where it crosses the top of Silver Cascade it took much precaution and wet shoes to cross. Trekking Poles were a must. Mizpah Hut was still open and serving hot soup and tea when we went through. The day started out dark, windy and cold in the Notch. Once on the trail it offered some protection from the wind. The Webster-Jackson Trail was a running brook up past Elephant head viewing area. The summit of Jackson was opening up when we got up around 11:00am but quickly the wind blew the cloud cover back over us. Webster Cliff Trail to Pierce was muddy but the bog bridges were up out of the water. Footing was slippery. Mizpah Hut was a little oasis of sun upon arrival and a much needed sock change was carried out. The summit of Pierce was more open and the wind had died down some when we got there around 2:30pm. Down Crawford Path, was another running brook. We saw lots of people and Gibbs Falls was moving fast and was overflowing with water.
