ancient bristlecone pines
The Ancient Bristlecone Pine forest, in the eastern Sierra Nevada, lies at 11,500 feet elevation and a 90 minute drive up a washboard gravel road. Being among the ancient trees, the oldest living things on earth (some near 5000 years old), gives one a sense of awe second to none. If you haven't made the trip up there, I'd highly recommend it.
