A motorcycle trip we took back in 2000 included a stop in Rachel, Nevada, at Area 51. Said by some to be a place where extraterrestrials have visited planet earth.
Still in '97, still on our motorbikes. We left Arcosanti then headed east to New Mexico, north to Colorado, west to Utah, then Nevada and home.
Great Basin National Park is a mountainous oasis in eastern Nevada and Wheeler Peak (3,982 m) is its highest point. Back in 2002 four of us drove from the bay area to camp and hike up to the top.
