Description

A four mile-long-loop trail in the White Mountains winds among the ancient bristlecone pines at around 10,000 ft elevation. I had been longing for years to see these ancient trees - the oldest living things on Earth, so on a weekend in September I made the long drive up to the White Mountains. The views were spectacular and the trees did not disappoint. This ancient tree stood, partly dead but the remainder still growing and thriving over centuries and centuries.
