    John I have no first hand reports on tripod trail. Give Tal Vista a try. They would have a good idea. I do know that the Skwentna river crossing at the Yetna was an issue. Heard a couple of Irondoggers went swimming with only 2 out of 3 sleds recovered to date. Anything running that way demands experience.

    Thanks, yikes, that's not good. I have called Tal Vista a few times, no answer and no return calls. Not sure what the problem is. I only need to make to where Luces use to be. Thanks anyway.

    Getting up to Luces old lodge should be fine, especially if not hauling anything. Friends are up at their place right above Luces right now.

    Because of last and this years snow conditions there no reason to open the lodge. IMO
