We were guests at a B&B on 375 acres of cliffs and desert, in a deep isolated canyon of the Mount Wheeler range, just outside of Nevada’s Great Basin National Park. One day we hiked all over Hidden Canyon.
Surrounded by rocky cliffs on both sides of a mile-wide valley, we watched a golden eagle; followed a river that emptied into a lake with frolicking warblers and swallows dipping into the water’s surface. Wildflowers and desert sagebrush surrounded us, wild turkeys ate apples fallen from an abandoned orchard, and the melodious heavenly song of a canyon wren filled the air.
Enjoy these photos from our hike that day.
