Ascent Trip Report

Heading up the spur trail to The Horn, we ran into a female moose. She was just barely off trail and was not happy to see us. I climbed a tree so I could see her demeanor better. After a couple foot stamps and a head lowering with ears back and a change of stance, we decided to head back to the main trail. We gave her about 15-20 minutes before heading back up to see if she was still there. She was. Never saw a calf. With daylight fading, we decided to just keep going. The Horn will be there another day. Getting mauled by a moose isn't on my to do list in life.
