Thanks. We love GBNP. We're heading back again in June. Depending on what you're looking for, and your camping/hiking style, you might be able to join us.
With the exception of Valley of Fire and the Lake Tahoe area, I always thought of Nevada as nothing but plain old boring desert.
aI also remember reading something somewhere that the bulk of Nevada, at least eastern Nevada had no bears. Is this true for GBNP?
Zero bears in GBNP, which is AWESOME. I don't have anything against bears, I think they're cool, but I also think it's cool to leave the bear canisters at home.
Will, check out the Ruby Mountains. Another surprising paradise to be found in Nevada. But I agree, with a few surprises Nevada is pretty empty.
I've been trying to find a good spot to take my wife on her first short backpacking trip in June, I think GBNP might fit the bill nicely.
Ruby Mountains look absolutely spectacular, and, like Great Basin, should be accessible by the end of June. Nice for the time when the Uintas, Winds, etc still locked in snow, and canyon country is too hot.
