What made the Owens Valley the way it is, in our time? An accident of history, of water grabs, of one group of humans using easy money to buy out another group of humans, that's what preserved the most beautiful place in the world from the fate of the Central Valley.

You ever drive the "Loneliest Road In America"? That's what they call U.S. 50, across the Great Basin Desert through the middle of Nevada. Not many people out there, not a lot going on.
