No summit  Sucess!

50+ mph winds were forecast for the summit so we did the Bristlecone and Glacier trails instead with no regret. Loved the laid back atmosphere of the park.

Great little park *and* town  Sucess!

With enough advance planning, Baker is the perfect base for exploring GBNP and the surrounding area. Wheeler Peak and the park's other trails are great, but it's just the brightest jewel in the crown that is the surrounding Great Basin. Note: 60 MPH autumn winds in otherwise clear weather made me bail on some plans... thankfully there is enough to see in the area to not have wasted that time.

Recovery Trip  Sucess!

I was recovering from mono when we went to Great Basin so unfortunately I didn't make it up Wheeler. Still enjoyed the high alpine lakes, bristlecones, Lehman Caves and Creek.

Wheeler and Bald  Sucess!

I saved the cave for a return trip with the GF. The Border Inn had shower and laundry facilities in Baker, Nevada for very reasonable rates, plus a restaurant for dinner. The nearby Baker Archaeological site was also worth checking out.

high summer trip  Sucess!

Camped at 10000 feet in Wheeler Campground. Climbed Wheeler Peak and hiked Bristlecone... nice, cool and green. Well worth the price of park admission (it is free!)

Wheeler and the Cave  Sucess!

Gimplilator, Michael, and I did a cave tour and climbed up Wheeler Peak which I was amazed at how soft the powder was. No snow shoes needed.

Camped and Hiked  Sucess!

Camped with my grandpa and climbed Wheeler with my cousin. I was 9 Years old. Drove by the beast on my way to Utah- still as remarkable as I remember.
