White Mountains Bristlecone Pine Pictures

 White Mountains Bristlecone Pine

The Patriarch Grove of Bristlecone Pines is located at an elevation of over eleven thousand feet in the White Mountains of Inyo National Forest. After doing some scouting the day before, I had arrived back at the Grove well before sunrise. Hiking through these ancient pines, under a dome of stars proved to be a truly memorable experience. As I passed individual trees, the slight breeze would rustle their branches silhouetted against the star filled sky. Age old sentinels they stand their posts along this barren ridgeline, some having sprouted over four thousand years ago. This photo was taken just prior to full sunrise.
