The only national park completely within my home state of Nevada is Great Basin National Park. Although it is not exactly a frequently visited park compared with others in the west (e.g. Yosemite, Yellowstone, Grand Canyon), it is nonetheless a fascinating place with interesting geology (e.g. caves) and a vibrant wilderness high in the desert. One of the more beautiful locations within the park is Wheeler Peak Scenic Drive, which offers stunning stands of aspens changing color during autumn.
