I had never driven an ATV before and we had a blast! It was a beautiful ride over creeks, rocks, mud and dirt. Once we finally got to Wheeler, it was a 0.6 mile hike uphill (at 11,000 feet elevation) and the views were worth it.

After our hike we took the long 2 hour drive back in our ATV. Places like Wheeler must have been in the minds of those who wrote that ancient Chinese proverb...
"The journey is the reward."
Wheeler is a place that you have to want to visit because it takes determination. If that sounds good to you... go for it!
