Comments
Comments: A nice loop over Jackson using current and abandoned sections of the MSG. In general, everything was dry, although around the pond to the east of the peak things were quite wet in places. There were some minor areas of ice, but nothing requiring traction.

From the pond, we hooked around to the other side and took the old trail up, which was still in good shape, but messy with water and blowdowns down low. Up higher it was fine.

Muted views from the top today due to the overcast and lack of light, but temps were comfortable for November.
