Great Old Trees!

Big Pine, California

Ya gotta love the twists and turns of these old bristlecone pines. This one has a bit
of green on it, so is still a living tree, and is probably well over 4000 years old.

Honorable Mention, 150th Show and Tell Contest, "Details, but not Macro"

This is a tough old tree too. Can you imagine the heat and drought conditions that this tree has survived? They are by far the most impressive trees on the planet, for their ability to survive harsh conditions.
