Blauert: Black Rock Desert is great place for viewing wildlife

Our great Central Valley once had great herds of deer, elk, and pronghorn antelope. With a pre-Gold Rush population of less than 1 million distributed over the entire state and no dams to prevent flooding, it looked much different than it does today. Some have described the valley in that time period as “California’s Serengeti.” Although those days have passed, there are still some places in the western states that compare with the best offered by the plains of East Africa.
