The Great Basin physiographic region covers most of Nevada, the western third of Utah and smaller portions of eastern California, southeastern Oregon and southern Idaho. This 210,000 square mile area is bordered by California’s Sierra Nevada Range to the west, Utah’s Wasatch Range to the east, the south edge of the Columbia Plateau to the north and the Mojava Desert to the south. Great Basin is huge and one of the newer National Parks! We will explore and have the opportunity to hike just a small area of this amazing natural wonder.
