Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest
We had a fun day in the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest in the White Mountains last weekend. Two of the world’s oldest trees are there, 4500+ years and 5000 years old. The trees are unmarked, but a trail takes you past one of them. We didn’t take that one, too far for little Truman.
We also drove out to the Patriarch Grove where the world’s largest Bristlecone is located, it’s a bumpy, dusty drive.

And remember this summer, if you are traveling in some of the lovely national parks and forests that the USA has to offer and there is an honor box for a park fee or a map or trail information, that is not a donation request. It is a fee that the park service is trusting and relying on you to pay. (I overheard a few upsetting conversations, one of which included “F*ck that sh*t. If they wanted me to pay, they would have a gate.” ) Ugh.
