The Ruby Mountains of Northeastern Nevada are little known jewels. Topped by Ruby Dome at 11,387 ft, they are some of the most heavily glaciated mountains in the Great Basin. Myriads of wild flowers cover steep slopes. Over 30 lakes occupy glacial tarns.
This Visitors Guide is a good companion to any visit to the Rubies, telling of the history, geology, types of trees, flowers, birds and mammals the visitor will encounter. It describes some of the most accessible spots and some of the most inaccessible canyons.
