Sardine Lake Resort is on the end - over to the right; best dining in the area. The ridge along the horizon straight ahead is hike-able and awesome. The dark ridge straight ahead is a mile away and conceals Upper Sardine Lake...
Walk west from Sand Pond and you
come to Lower Sardine Lake, just a totally beautiful place. This
is a popular fishing lake with no swimming allowed. The water's so clear that at noon you can see
to the bottom; it's like fishing in an aquarium.
Upper Sardine Lake: Takes
only a short hike to get to. This is a pure glacial bowl; the
rock plunges straight into the water, no beach at all. Great
fishing; ice-cold swimming. Due north of Sierra
City about 15 minutes. Tahoe
