As expected, the road leading to the start of BEEBEE's tracks was snowed in. I parked off the road on the north-west end of the Mountain Ranch Resort. This made the hike a little longer, but not much - 1.6 miles round trip. I had bare ground and crusted over snow for a good portion of the hike which made the hike easy in those spots. There were a few places, especially near the top where the snow came up to my thighs. Still, this is a quick and easy SOTA activation. There is cell reception at the top.

"I hope we have once again reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There's a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: as government expands, liberty contracts."
