This magical grove is located in the White Mountains, east of the Owens Valley of California. It has some of the longest-living trees on the planet, Ancient Bristlecone Pines. These trees have adapted to survive in very harsh conditions, and even after they die the sturdy trunks remain standing for thousands of years. This specific one may not be the oldest, since the exact location of the 4,750 years old “Methuselah” is kept secret to protect the tree. Nonetheless, it is definitely a very ancient tree.
I will be writing about our trip to the Owens Valley in more detail quite soon, so stay tuned!
