Sutter Buttes

2004-03-18 18:53:54.256857+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

Every time I drive up I-5 north of Sacramento, I look to the east and wonder about that small mountain range that rises out of the nothingness of the rice fields of the central valley. Today there's a Chronicle article about the Sutter Buttes, and a recent state purchase to turn some of those mountains into a park.

Of note, the Sutter Buttes is reputed to be the world's smallest mountain range.
