Comments
Comments: Bare booted the road walk and wore snowshoes the rest of the hike. Could have gotten away with spikes for the uphill in the morning but once it started to get warm the trial started turning to slush and snowshoes were really useful. The people who broke trail to unknown pond before me postholed a lot.

Great conditions overall, the view from the horn was better than i was expecting
