In Elko County, sagebrush is always within view if merely in one’s peripheral vision. The sagebrush landscape is a beautiful but harsh landscape, a land little known and less understood. It is also a landscape in trouble. Over 500,000 acres of ground burned in 2007 and one million acres in 2006. Nevada has seen six bad fire seasons since 1999, burning an average of one million acres each year.
