Description

The Patriarch Grove of the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest is one of the most serene places I've ever visited--at approximately 11,000 feet, there's little more to the landscape than these ancient trees; I especially like the dead snags--some last "alive" more than 1,000 years ago--because of the stark beauty of their gnarled, reaching branches. On this evening, the fading earth shadow provided a simple but lovely backdrop to this old soul.
