sierra buttes

The Sierra Buttes has to be one of my favorite spots to go hike and photo in the summer. A short drive north of Truckee sits this rocky peak.

Sierra Buttes is the dominant peak in the Lakes Basin area of northern Sierra Nevada. There is nothing higher north until Lassen Peak and south until Mount Lola. It is a craggy peak of volcanic origin, with lots of spectacular pinnacles on top. The summit pinnacle is about 100 feet high and slightly overhanging, on top of which is a fire lookout hut over looks the valley below.
