I am always amazed that there is virtually no development around Pyramid lake? Is it because it is in the Indian reservation and the tribe doesnt want to build?

I always thought that the scenery there is perfect for whitewashed houses such as those of the Greek islands. The contrast between the white, blue and dark earth would be similar to Santorini. Imagine our own little Santorini in our backyard!

Good question, I have wondered that myself. Could it be just the isolation of being a half hour north of Spanish Springs?

US laws don't apply on Rez sooooo... I understand why people don't want to invest in areas where there are no boundaries or enforcements!

NOT a good idea. Why spoil the pristine nature??? Jim Morrison was right, people are strange.

Look at the pictures and tell me why it isn't an improvement. Not all development is bad. Not all nature is beautiful.

Would you prefer Venice as a swamp or one of the most beautiful city in the world? Do you want an empty barren desert or Marrakech? Would anybody visit Machu Picchu area if there is no ruin there?
