Comments
Comments: Got an early start to avoid the pm storms forecast. Annoying spiders/webs for the hike up. Crawford Path wet and muddy in usual spots-easily avoided. Webster Cliff Trail in good shape down to hut and over to Jackson. Decided to return the same way and avoid the wet ledges and rocks on the Jackson Branch Trail (and road walk back to Crawford lot). Probably added about 0.5 mile to the hike.

Overall a very good day - outstanding views from both summits. Met a # of thru hikers on Pierce.
