Lake Bigler resides on the border of Nevada and California, near Truckee Pass. Originally a silver mine town, the industry has switched to Ghost Rock. The real industry is the floating casino. Gambling is illegal in the Union state of Nevada, but that law ends once you get off shore. And there are always prospectors eager to turn their luck around.
(Ed Note: Lake Bigler was the original name of Lake Tahoe. Truckee Pass was the original name of Donner Pass)
