Boundary Peak, NV

Boundary Peak in the White Mountains –  Boundary Peak  Nevada’s highest point 13,146′. Boundary Peak rises above the White Mountains along the California border. The White Mountains are a high and dry range that descends eastward through numerous colorful canyons into the Nevada desert. If you hike up some of these steep canyons you might come to an abrupt end at a spot where ancient waterfalls once carved into the rock. Exposed in some areas are fossils dating back about 600 million years. Most of Boundary Peak Wilderness is above treeline, and as such, can be a quite dangerous place with gale-force winds and frequent lightning storms.  (Map for reference only)
