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."
