I had an urge to up and leave town this past weekend to the Great Basin National Park in Nevada. I've bike toured US-50 or "The Loneliest Road in America" back in 2009 with Tim. At the time we decided not to trek the side road towards the entrance which is located in little town of Baker. There's almost an 8,000 ft difference in elevation between Wheeler Peak and the valley floor...bike touring up to the base of the peak was not an option.
