As hundreds of firefighters mopped up the last of the embers from a fire that destroyed 15 homes and briefly threatened the governor's mansion, other crews were starting the job of replanting. Fire officials said they initially would create artificial terraces to slow runoff this fall from rain, then begin planting grass and brush and finally put in trees. The process is expected to take more than a year.

My friend Ivy, who lived in Nevada for years, looked genuinely puzzled when I said I was going to Carson City for the weekend. "Why?" she asked, looking no less puzzled after I mentioned the Spooner Lake Cross Country Ski Area and its stirring views of Lake Tahoe and the Sierra. Even among Nevadans, Carson City is a conundrum. It may be the state capital, but it feels like a frontier outpost because of its isolated setting in a high-desert valley.
