Webster-Jackson – Spring hiking!

I took my friend Hans up Webster-Jackson a few weekends ago for some spring hiking – he really enjoyed the rock scrambles on Welch-Dickey, so of course  I thought Webster-Jackson would be the perfect next route. IMG_3975

And the theme of spring hiking, is, of course, the water that’s flowing and rushing all over the mountains! So gorgeous!

The trail up to Webster has many small springs that were overflowing and bubbling along.

On the left is my most adorable friend, Hans, and on the right is Hans halfway up the rock scramble on the face of Jackson – so much fun!

The top of the waterfall on the Webster trail.  It feeds into a nice, calm pool that’s perfect for a quick dip on a hot day.

And, once we summited, that rarest of views – a perfectly clear day! This is, I think, the Presidential ridge, and that mountain in the back is Washington – you can tell by the observation towers on it! I’ve never gotten a clear view before (My apologies for the weird circle thing – I have no idea what’s going with my lens.)

And a beautiful view from the top of Jackson – this hike was as gorgeous as I remember (and as challenging to go down.  For some reason, the downhill part of this hike is really challenging.)  But it was a perfect day – lovely hiking, great views, and we were both pleasantly tired out by the time we got back into the car.
