Comments
Comments: For Webster-Jackson standards, the trail was fairly dry today. Still plenty of areas of mud and slippery rock (scramble ledges up high were dry), as this trail is absolutely trashed from heavy usage without a sustainable footbed. It is really sad to see this trail continue to deteriorate. It's no wonder some folks have no interest in traveling it without adequate snowpack to cover up the carnage.

Mostly cloudy afternoon with seasonable temperatures.
