|Forest Service Parking Lot - Alturas 2017|
|Emergency Response Trailer - Alturas 2017|
I arrived in Alturas later than I had planned. I checked in at my motel (an Emergency Response trailer parked opposite) and drove over to the local Forest Service HQ, where I got some maps and pointers from a helpful government employee.
In point of fact, the largest employer in Alturas is the government (Federal, State and local.) All its elected representatives are Republicans.
