Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest

The Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest is located in the White Mountains, east of the Sierra Nevada at an elevation between 10,000 and 11,000 feet. These pine trees are among the oldest living things on earth, with the most ancient trees being more than 40 centuries old. The unique location of the forest, combined with high elevation and extreme exposure to the elements have twisted the trees into amazing shapes over the years.
