  • description:
    Small mountain town in the northern Sierra Nevada, along the North fork of the Yuba River. Situated right below the Sierra Buttes & next door to Lakes Basin recreation area (aka Gold Lake). A perfect lil place to spend the weekend, away from the crowds, tucked way back up here, hidden in granite splendor.
