After completing the BTC and summiting Mt. Evans, we decided to go for the triple crown and bag Mt. Wheeler, the 2nd tallest peak in Nevada on the way home. Mt. Wheeler a 13,063' peak is located in Great Basin National Park near Baker on the eastern edge of Nevada.
About 2 miles into the hike, a big storm swept in and a bolt of lightening struck across the mountain scaring the dickens out of us. Heavy rains and more lightening and thunder followed. It was time to get off the mountain.
