List Description

This is an interesting list--it turns out that there is one Great Basin range with a 14,000 foot high point, one more with a 13,000 foot high point, and one more with a 12,000 foot high point. Then, suddenly, there are 13 ranges with highpoints between 11,000 and 11,999 feet. Also, the three highest ranges are in three different states (California, Nevada, and Utah).
