Great Basin National Park is located in eastern Nevada near the border of Utah. It is a bit small for a national park and has few visitors. This is unfortunate, as it is a nice place to visit for a few hours or to overnight in the campground. The primary points of interest are Lehman Caves and the Snake Range of mountains, which include Wheeler Peak (12,305 feet) and Mt. Baker (12,298).
Note that all the pictures here are from our last trip that took place in early June.
