This ran in the paper as a "did you know," I switched it around into a quiz. It's pretty easy.

1. Name the average surface temperature of Lake Tahoe for March and for August.

2. Name the driveable (paved) passes over the Sierra. (Does Tehachapi count?)

3. What year did the grizzly bear disappear from the Sierra?

4. How many lakes in the Sierra 20 feet across or larger?

5. Name the major rivers of the Sierra.

6. Who named the Sierra Nevada?

7. How many peaks in the Sierra over 12,000 feet elevation?

8. Name the only range in the Sierra that's actually in Nevada.

9. How many American Indians (maximum) once lived in the Sierra? How many tribes?

10. What percentage of the Sierra is publicly owned?

11. Name the nine National Forests in the Sierra.

12. How long and wide is the Sierra?

Happy Easter.
