Wheeler Peak

One of my Japanese friends on Mixi wrote about how nice it is to go to the mountains. I agree. This photo was taken in what might be my favorite mountain range. Wheeler Peak is 3,981m (13,063 ft) making it is the second tallest mountain in Nevada near the Utah border in Great Basin National Park. Although the smallest of the National Parks, Great Basin is one of the best because of its size and remote location. It also has the beautiful Lehman Caves that you can tour.
