Our awesome Great Basin.

Amy Marr's wonderful article "The Other Sierra" (August, page 27; Northern California edition) didn't think quite big enough about the Great Basin. It isn't just Nevada's Great Basin, as she writes, but rather America's Great Basin. It includes nearly all of Nevada; the whole western third or so of Utah, including Salt Lake City; the southeast corner of Oregon; the southwest edge of Idaho; and the area of California covered in the article except for Devils Postpile National Monument. It is huge and incredibly diverse. So you could have titled the article "The Other Great Basin."
