Comments
Comments: It was a fine day to be out. Last time I did Webster-Jackson-Pierce, there was fog for much of the day, so this was a treat. I could finally see Washington! I was especially happy for the AT thru-hikers who had a very memorable time for their traverse of the Presidentials. The views were endless, the weather perfect.

Watch out for the mud. There was one spot, I think between Jackson and Pierce, where the mud was easily shin deep.

Photos and a more detailed write-up are on my blog.
