Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe
of Nevada has closed access to a part of Pyramid Lake.
The tribe is closing the area due to vandalism at a sacred site. "The Tribe needs time clean up damage and to come up with a plan for this area that will allow for responsible use of the area for both Tribal Members and visitors to Pyramid Lake," Chairman Wayne Burke told KTVN-TV.
Other parts of the lake are still open to visitors who obtain a tribal permit.
