The Great Basin is a group of basins and mountain ranges in the western US, mostly in Nevada but also including parts of California, Oregon, Idaho and Utah. The basin area is generally between the Sierra and Cascade Mountains to the west and the Rocky Mountains to the east. The Great Basin is considered a cold desert, and contains many mountains and high elevations.
