-- Liking this as an early AM ride. Lots of cars at the gate parking lot but very few folks out, especially above HR. Out on Sierra Ridge I stopped and talked to some guys 4 wheelin behind the locked gates. Turns out they own those properties, or so they said. They did have the keys. They told me Beeks donated all their family properties to the State. Nice folks and we all agreed it was a very beautiful place to be at that moment. Cool breezes. Starting to feel some strength coming back? Finished stronger. Great Ride!
