Incredible day on Mts. Jackson and Webster today! Partly sunny skies with the summit at 17 degrees, gusts as high as 40 mph with -9 wind chill. Good view down into Notch from Bugle Cliff and excellent view from the summit of Jackson. The snow laden conifers made it an especially pretty climb.

We wore snowshoes car to car. Trail was nicely packed to Mt. Jackson where we then had to break most of the trail to reach Mt. Webster. It was hard to follow at times. The ridge walk along Webster Cliff Trail was a winter wonderland! A couple of hikers had just left the Mt. Webster trail junction hiking in our direction who were ecstatic beyond words that the five us had broken the trail to Mt. Jackson. We helped packed down the trail to the Webster-Jackson trail junction.

We caught partial views from Mt. Webster and enjoyed the frozen Silver Cascade. Got home in time to catch an alpenglow on Sandwich Dome!

Everyone was friendly and seemed to be having a great time. Cheers to winter in the Whites!
