Nevada, meaning snow-capped in Spanish, seems very appropriate for this White Mountains scene. Know as the most mountainous state in the Lower 48, Nevada is mostly desert, lying in the rain shadows of some of the tallest peaks in the Sierra-Nevada Mountain Range. Here on the border with California, the White Mountains are a triangular shaped fault block range. Located east of California's Owens Valley, the White Mountains are locked in by the Excelsior Mountains to the north, and the Silver Peak Range to the south.
