Frog Lake--and exclusive new destination!
Nice article in SF Gate/the SF Chronicle about a new section of the Sierra that has been opened up to hikers and skiers--courtesy of the Truckee Donner Land Trust. It's a remarkable story, and a section of the Sierra that has been in private hands for more than a hundred years.
Here's the whole story as it appears on the SF Gate website:
We've hiked the area around Castle Peak a few times, both summer and winter, and can attest to the fact that it's lovely. And the option of getting up over the ridge and hidden from I-80 makes this new area even more appealing.
