Visiting 299 National Parks!

Hi Everyone,  I'm here at beautiful Great Basin National Park in Nevada. This is my 299th Park visit on my "Quest for 300" National Park Tour!   The entire Ranger staff came out to visit with me and take photos. I went on a wonderful cave tour at the Lehman Caves area. One of the Rangers brought us up to the top of the mountains and sang for us!! Behind me on the mountaintop is a grove of the famous bristlecone pine trees-possibly the oldest trees on earth!! I hope you can visit this fantastic National Park soon!
