Comments: Awesome day to be out. The Northern unknown pond trail is a very nice, quite trail. A ton animal signs, some on the trail, trees. Seems like a very active area for animals. We didn't get to see any, but the signs were all there. Unknown pond area is beautiful. The Horn took the cake for views today. I'm very glad that we took this route as opposed to the "normal" loop. Small patches of snow on the ridge trail and heading up the spur trail to the horn. Brought spikes, never used them. If it stays this warm, snow should be completely gone soon.
