Great Basin National Park

We set up camp next to a rushing stream. Kelton quickly mastered the log bridge. His brothers were soon to follow. After setting up camp we drove up to 10,000' altitude to view the 13,000' Wheeler Peak and hike around the alpine zone. The next morning we were 130' underground touring the Lehman Caves. It's definitely been a trip of contrasts! After our cave tour we drove across Nevada on the loneliest stretch of highway I've ever seen. No cell service most of the way and only two real towns all day. We made it to June Lake, a little town on the Eastern Sierra. It feels like home already. Brennan rolled down the window and kissed the outside when we crossed the border into California. Finally we drive home through Tuolumne Meadows of Yosemite and sleep at 'real house' tomorrow.
