Sierra Buttes, Gold Lakes Highway, CA

Tom Stienstra, Outdoors Writer Extraordinaire, (SF GATE 8/2/12) inspired us to check out this area with 20 lakes sitting at the base of the spires launching upwards from the lakes, stunning. Many are accessible by car, and some, like Upper Sardine and Tamarack Lakes, require a hike, but so worth it!

We also visited Blairsden for the Bakery (sold out by 10 AM), and 18 holes of golf.

    HI Sally and Steve-

    I was just up in the Graeagle area this past weekend and we saw the Sierra Buttes and sardine lake, Packer Lake and the pond between the two sardine lakes.
    Isn’t that area spectacular? I will return next fall for golf and hikes and serene beauty. Which course did you play? Was it one you would recommend??
