Wheeler Peak

This picture is almost a couple years old, but I was thinking about Great Basin NP earlier today and was kinda thinking I needed to go back there soon. Definitely one of my favorite parks and it has Bristlecones, one of my favorite things. The good stuff abounds. Take me there. Skywatch, Blue Monday

Hey! I've done this one! I think I complained the whole time I was out there. (Just kidding) It's steep but worth it. Love your photo. It's getting me excited for hiking season...

Clytie said...

Spectacular! I hope you get to go back too - so I can see more of these superb photos!!!

Lois said...

How pretty! I love the light.

We were there a couple of years ago. I haven't used any of my shots as it was before I started blogging. I keep thinking I will pull them up sometime when I have nothing new.

The problem with this park is it is so out of the way. That's one of the good things about it as well.
