AT 10,500 FEET

Took another day trip back to Great Basin National Park. This time I drove to the end of the road up Wheeler Peak. I wasn't disappointed. This photo fails to do the actual scene justice. It was stunningly beautiful. More so than I could imagine, (and it's in Nevada, folks.) It was almost like winter, but it's only October. Snow had fallen the first of the week, but the road was dry(still a little spooky to drive) and easily passable. When you reach the top, suddenly you see this scene. Wheeler is the second highest mountain in Nevada and reaches 13,000 feet elevation. Very impressive!
