Last Gnarly Tree of the set - there will be more from other places but
that's it for the bristlecones of Great Basin.
For this trip anyway :^)
July 28th, 2011: Walking among the oldest living things on Earth on the Bristlecone Trail, Great Basin National Park, Nevada.
Some of these trees are nearly 5,000 years old, even their needles live for up to 40 years.
(still posting photos from the "Canceled due to Weather" tour)
