Route: Auto road and herd path combination

On my way to a presentation in Lancaster, I stopped in Bethlehem to check out Mt. Agassiz.

We generally took the old auto road to the top, using a herd path to bypass a few sections. It wasn't particularly scenic by any means, however the views from the summit vista were tremendous. We avoided going to the highpoint, as the summit is now a private residence (polite foot traffic welcome).
