Up the Lake with a Paddle
Volume 4 - The High Country Lake of the Central Sierra Nevada


By William Van Der Ven

Volume four of the Up the Lake with a Paddle series features information on the lakes and surrounding places of interest that cover the following drainages: West Fork of the Carson, where it flows through Charity Valley and nearby Carson Pass; the mid portion of the North Fork of the Mokelumne River within the forested confines of Eldorado National Forest; and finally, the granite encased reservoirs that border Carson-Iceberg Wilderness. All but a few of these bodies of water lie at elevations well above 5,000 feet earning them the title, “Lakes of the High Country.”

In addition to the choicest paddling locations in the high country of the Sierra, this book includes information on the history, geology, plants, birds and animals of each of the regions. Expanded “In the Eddy” and “Paddle Notes” sections range from hikes to practical information on poison oak you may be itchin’ to know.
