Great Basin National Park is ugly. Not much to see there other than the very large grove of Bristlecone Pines. The elevation is also extreme, 11,000 feet. It is in the middle of a gigantic desert so the tree line where trees start growing is at a staggering 8000 feet to begin with.

This tree is a staggering 3200 years old... ^^^

The main attraction of Great Basin are the Lehman Caves and the Gigantic Bristlecone Pine Grove.

You can also see some Birch and Maple Trees in the small plateau in the shadow of Wheeler Peak:
