Mark McLaughlin: Sierra Nevada Weather and Cultural Historian
The Winter 2015-2016 edition of Snowy Range Reflections is composed entirely with the works of Mark McLaughlin. As a member of the Sierra College Press Advisory board and contributor to the Sierra Nevada Virtual Museum of Sierra College, we greatly appreciate his continuing and colorful contributions. What the reader will find in his “Tahoe Nuggets” and other articles, is a writer long-versed in the stories located within the region of the Sierra Nevada mountain range.
Mark was trained as a Weather and Cultural Historian at the University of Nevada, Reno, has over 700 articles in print and currently is working on his seventh book. He has won numerous writing awards in Nevada, consults on CNN, the History Channel, and The Weather Channel, and is a frequent guest on National Public Radio. Living in North Lake Tahoe since 1978, Mark has especially researched the region of the Sierra Nevada range, though his articles encompass the Owens Valley, Reno, and Donner Summit as well.
Sierra College invites its readers to get comfortable, relax, and let Mark McLaughlin’s writing carry your imagination to the actual places and people who contributed to the history of this remarkable region, the Sierra Nevada.
