I "assisted" on a breeding bird survey this morning around and above Greenwater. Best were Pine Grosbeak, Gray Jays, Common Nighthawk, and lots of elk (seen and heard), which fortunately stayed out of the collision zone.
About roads: high clearance was necessary to get through three snow patches on the way to Pyramid Pass (or whatever is the pass just south of what my friend called Pyramid Peak -- between Government Meadows and Windy Gap). The good news is our check of the water crossing at the start of forest road 7030, if I have it right -- the way up to Windy Gap, Kelly Butte, and Sawmill Creek burn -- found a culvert installed since last report five days ago (!). Only a biggish pond now stands on one side of the road, with the creek now _beneath_ it instead of over it (unlike last year/s). I can't speak for the eleventy fallen trees on the road from last report (okay, 17), because we didn't go up that way.
