Mt. Jackson (4,052')

Jacqueline and I arrived at Hancock Campground around 5pm to set up shop.  Grabbed dinner at CJ's Penalty Box in Lincoln as a change of pace from the Woodstock Inn. Perfect weather, and slept without the rain fly which was really nice on a clear night.  Got a leisurely start and hit the trail around 10AM.  Warm on the way up and pretty hot by the time we made it to the top. Lots of stream crossings but nothing that required getting wet. Short rock scramble at the top was unexpected but fun.  Jacqueline bagged her second 4K and had a much better time.
