GREAT BASIN, NEVADA

Country - - AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL -

This bristle­cone pine grove over­looks Wheeler Peak, which stretches 13,000 feet sky­ward. Th­ese an­cient trees are leg­endary for their longevity and abil­ity to thrive de­spite ex­tremely harsh grow­ing con­di­tions. Great Basin, a se­cluded na­tional park, re­wards vis­i­tors with un­crowded trails, undis­turbed wilder­ness and spec­tac­u­lar views of starry skies. Un­der­ground, the Lehman Caves add an­other di­men­sion to the land­scape.
