Defacing Tribal Lands = Closed Areas

Recent vandalism prompted the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribal Council to close the area near the pyramid tufa rock and Tribal Route #5 access road as of April 15 to the general public until further notice.

Pyramid Lake is an area of cultural importance and in general a natural area. Not to sound too demeaning, but what do we do with things we find in nature? Leave them how we found them! I don’t appreciate graffiti in general, but graffiti on natural objects really irks me because we can’t just paint over it to get rid of it.

Let’s take care of the outdoors so we can continue to enjoy our natural areas and remember to leave what you find. Unless you find litter - you can pick up litter.
