Great Basin

The valleys, mountains and deserts of the Great Basin, mostly made up of Nevada, are home to 21 federally recognized tribes and countless outdoor experiences. Immerse yourself in the history of the region as you encounter famous pictographs, ancient lakes and sweeping views of a landscape that has gone largely unchanged for years.
  • Nevada is known as the driest state in the nation.
  • Historically, tribes of the Great Basin were often categorized by their use or rejection of horses.
  • The Hydrographic Great Basin drains internally – meaning all precipitation here evaporates, sinks underground or flows into lakes, with no water ever reaching the ocean.
