In the Sierras, New Approaches to Protecting Forests Under Stress

By Janet Marinelli • February 13, 2017

In California’s Sierras and around the world, extreme drought and rising temperatures are killing trees and threatening the viability of forests. Some ecologists are saying that land managers now need to adopt radically new strategies.

Too bad someone couldn't spell Sierra correctly.

I brought this to Ms.Marinelli's attention. Here is her response:
"Hello, I applaud your dedication to grammatical correctness! I will leave it up to others to decide whether the existence of the Ritter Range and the Inconsolable Range have any bearing on the accuracy of Sierra or Sierras."

Sierras* (four, to be exact, hanging on wall middle left), as seen from Costa Rica:



* This was pre-zoomy camera, so you can't read the small sign under the first sierra, but it said "SIERRAS".

A non response would have been better.

Obviously it's

Sierras Nevadas that's kind of catchy

Bottom line:

Sierra- long rugged mountain range
Nevada - snowy

There is no plural. There is no Sierra(s) Nevada(s) Mountain(s). Just The Sierra Nevada. I'm done with my pontificati.

But... there is a legitimate use of "Sierra Nevadas": "I have three Sierra Nevadas in my bear can. Want one?"



As opposed to: "I have a Sierra Nevada in my bear can... Yum!"

Does anyone know all of the sub ranges in the Sierra?
Wiki shows these:
Carson Range
Cathedral Range
Clark Range
Crystal Range
Great Western Divide
Kaweah Peaks Ridge
Palisades
Ritter Range
Sherwin Range

There are definitely more.

Perhaps,"I have three bottles of Sierra Nevada beer in my beer can..." and I do want one.
