Description

An Ancient Bristlecone Pine, emerging from a rocky outcropping, soaks up the late afternoon sun. This specimen survives in the Schulmann Grove in the White Mountains, high above Owens Valley, California. It is not that these ancient trees live so long but rather they die so slowly. Only a small portion of bark, on the opposite side from this vantage point, remains vital.
