Despite its abundance of wilderness, recreational opportunities, hunting and fishing resources, and resplendent natural beauty, tourism is not a major sector of the local economy - largely due to the city's remote location.
Alturas in 2007 wasn't exactly thriving. Mike was interested to discover that highway 395 (of Eastern Sierra fame) runs right through town.
