First trip  Sucess!

Wasn't planning on hitting this summit, but after a wrong turn leaving the Mizpah hut we hit the summit at sunset. Decided to spend the night at the base rather than risk picking our way out in the dark. Glad I was prepared.

Crisp clear day  Sucess!

Great views from the top. Pretty icy on the western aspects, good thing I had some good spikes. 50% of the NH ones done!

1st of three  Sucess!

Eighty two minutes to the top from the TH on Rt 302. It was a well signed trail. Afterwards I bounced over to Webster to look at Crawford Notch from above.

Clear and cold  Sucess!

Nice climb... it was getting kind of icy and we ended up losing a the trail at a point. Good views, good day!

presi traverse dayhike  Sucess!

Part of a north-to-south presi traverse dayhike, Madison to Webster. Great conditions until just before the Mizpah hut, at which point there was some lightning and hail.

Ouch! But #8  Sucess!

Man, we went slowly up this one....but still a fun hike....the views made the scramble worth it. Took Webster-Jackson to Jackson trail. This got us 1/6 done with our goal. Windy at the top, and many friendly grey jays

blustery  Sucess!

Hiked up the Webster-Jackson Trail with my brother, Stephen, and my dog, Gerty. It was cold, windy, and snowy at the top, with zero visibility. The only other people we encountered were a couple of British guys.

Part of Presi Traverse

deep snow  Sucess!

We went with a group that was going to climb this, and Pierce. There was fresh snow, with a crust on it, and an unbroken trail so the going was very slow. We did not go to Pierce.

Webster-Jackson Trail from Crawford Notch  Sucess!

I had done this in August 2004 with some friends as part of a loop with Pierce. The weather was forecasted to be beautiful and it was. Just had to be in the mountains. After sitting at the summit for a while we (my wife, dogs, and friends) meandered over to the hut and headed down Crawford Path.

Mud and more mud  Sucess!

Took the Webster-Jackson trail from the notch and ran into a lot of mud. The trail up to the branch and the section up to Jackson had more mud. We summitted Jackson and spent a while there soaking up some sun. The day was absolutely clear and we could see into forever. We also saw two Northern Shrikes who were not afraid of people in the slightest. We then headed down the Webster Cliff Trail to bag Webster. We ran into mud and standing water most of the way. It was so slippery that we were taking way too long to cover the distance. We eventually summited Webster and then headed down to Silver Cascade. Again more mud and standing water. I was tired, satisfied and coated in mud by the time we finished.
