Great Basin National Park is one of the U.S.'s more out-of-the-way national parks, but those who make the trip are rewarded with the striking contrast of snowcapped peaks rising from a high-altitude desert.
Get out of town with these interesting Great Basin National Park side-trips: Pioche (Miller's Point & Million Dollar Courthouse) and Panaca (Cathedral Gorge State Park & Panaca Hot Springs). There's much more to do: explore the fascinating underground world of Lehman Caves, contemplate the waterfront views at Teresa Lake, tour the pleasant surroundings at Baker Lake Trail, and take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Wheeler Peak.

September in Great Basin National Park sees daily highs of 76°F and lows of 42°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 29th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
