Comments
Comments: It was a beautiful clear sunny day on jackson today with no wind. The webster jackson and jackson branch trails were smooth and packed down. The webster branch less so. When I went up the webster branch I put on my snowshoes after the silver cascade as I was having trouble getting traction on the steep parts in microspikes and for the televators. Snowshoes arent absolutely necessary for this trail right now but theyre very helpful. I broke trail on the webster cliff trail between webster and jackson as was covered in snow drifts up to my knees in some places. I needed snowshoes for this trail. The trail wasn't really marked and there were snow covered tree branches hanging down all over the trail. This made the trail difficult to follow. I got lost about halfway between the two summits and wandered around for a while before finding the trail again. If you take this trail soon be aware that my snowshoe tracks go off trail in some places.
