Bristlecome Pine

~ Visiting the Bristlecone Pine National Park in the White Mountains, east of the Sierras, I photographed many of the old gnarled trees. Some of the trees in this park are up to 4000 years old or more, and are amazing in that they can live and grow (slowly) at over 10,000 feet elevation, in poor soil and under harsh weather conditions.
