South Summit, Mount Jefferson
Nevada

The South Summit of Mount Jefferson, at 11,941 feet (3640 meters), is the highest peak in Nye County, Nevada.  The view from atop the mountain is beautiful, you can peak over the tops of all the surrounding mountains like they were low rocky fences. 

The top of the mountain is a vast plateau where we had hoped to spend a couple of days camping and roaming around.  Unfortunately, thunderstorms on several sides of the mountain compelled us to climb down before we'd had the chance to explore the whole plateau; we'll just have to come back again!

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
