California Outdoors for the week of 8/1/2012

Golfing with snakes

Question: For years I was always told there are no rattlesnakes in the Lake Tahoe area because the altitude was too high. However, recently I’ve read many articles that say rattlesnakes can live as high as 10,000 feet. I am worried because I play golf and often end up in the rough, which means looking for my golf ball in tall grass and brush. Are there rattlesnakes in the Lake Tahoe Basin and surrounding areas that I need to be watching out for?

The muster had been an integral part of the festivities for years, but had lost interest amongst Plumas County’s fire departments. This year Greenville Fire Chief Jim Hamblin asked the members of his department if they might be interested in bringing the event back and was surprised by the amount of attention it received.
