TAHOE, Utah (Reuters) – For nearly a century, a place that was once a hunting, fishing and camping destination has become a national symbol for environmental protection and a refuge for families and hunters.
Now, as climate change threatens the region’s forests, some of the world’s largest cities, and a new wave of people is trying to take over, it could become a new campground or a popular spot for locals to get out and do things.
As the climate warms, there are signs that the desert landscape may be changing as well.
In the last two decades, more people have been moving to the desert.
And the water is more plentiful.
It’s no coincidence that Tahoe and its many neighboring cities have become more urbanized, and have seen more people over the years.
They are becoming a magnet for retirees and tourists, who like to spend their money on things like air travel and the latest cars.
Many of the people who used to camp out at Tahoe’s old camping spots have moved away, or are considering it.
One of the few places that has been left, Lake Tahoe, is now full of people.
And as climate changes, there is a new set of challenges to worry about: how to keep a place like Lake Tahoes pristine and welcoming to people and wildlife.
In the 1950s, the lake was considered one of the most pristine in the world.
Today, the water quality is among the worst in the nation, and it is now among the driest places on the planet.
“Tahoe is really in the middle of a really bad trend,” said Mike Johnson, director of the Tahoe National Park, a park in northern Utah.
He said the water level in the lake is down by more than 1,000 feet (300 meters) and that there is no water to wash down the canyon walls.
Lake Tahoe is a lake, not a river.
That’s where the water goes.
That is where the food flows.
But it’s a beautiful place and people have always used it, he said.
Tahoes rivers and streams have always been a source of recreational and recreational boating and fishing, Johnson said.
But that was changed by the 1970s and 1980s when the lake became a haven for the U.S. military and other forces that were coming in.
There are also concerns that the new influx of tourists could change the natural water balance.
Johnson said there are some things the city of Tahoe could do to help the environment.
He said the city could put up a fence around the lake, to prevent the lake from overflowing and to stop the flow of visitors.
But the city has a lot of work to do to keep the lake clean and water-quality healthy, Johnson also said.
Johnson also said the state has to work harder to preserve the lake and protect it from human development.
For example, there were plans for a hotel near the lake that was supposed to open in 2020, but it never materialized.
