Recon trip to assess the viability of A-730
Started at the most recent bridge closure on Ashlu main, and followed A-730 as far as Pykett Creek. Should be an easy hop into the alpine from there.

In the summer the road is overgrown and not at all passable, but in Jan 2017 with around a meter of snow at 700m ASL it is quite pleasant. [photo]20170127_123910_resized.jpg[caption]Crossing Stuyvesant creek[/photo]
