Wheeler Peak

Elevation 13,063 feet - the second highest peak in Nevada
The summit trail parking lot is at 9886 feet altitude and we arrived there early in the morning, hoping to hike at least part way up Wheeler Peak.

As we climbed higher, we got into a lot of snow fields we had to traverse. The temperature dropped significantly and the wind was fierce.

The views were stunning1
