Ascent Trip ReportWe went the night before and stayed at the AMC Highland Center. The plan was to hike the next morning to Jackson and maybe Webster. The night before we heard of several hikers stuck and rescue had to be called in due to very muddy and slippery conditions as well as ice. The next day the weather was rainy, cloudy, windy, and wasn't very welcoming so we didn't even bother attempting the hike. Webster offers great views but it was clear there was zero visibility that day. So we'll just have to save it for another day.
