Pretty amazing to see some of the oldest living things on the planet! #bristleconepine #pinuslongaeva #greatbasinbristleconepine #tree

The oldest known living trees: Bristlecone Pines (Pinus longaeva). Characterized by female cones whose scales are tipped with claw like bristles (males lack this characteristic) and one-inch long needles that grow in bunches of five and completely surround the branches. In 1964, geographer Donald R. Currey aged numerous bristlecones in the Wheeler Peak moraine of Great Basin National Park by core samples and determined some individuals were over 4000 years old. He is also credited with killing Prometheus, a popular tree amongst local mountaineers, when he cut it down to count it's rings. It had 4,862, that's around 4,900 years old in people years. source: nps

Trees of deep time are a portal to the past and future * To see the living bristlecone is to be struck by their beauty, but also by their strangeness and their extraordinary-intricately spirally limbs. It is hard to resist cliche when conveying the antiquity of these ancient beings , the bristlecone pine. @marybernsen and Tim✌🏽thank you very much for this quick but enjoyable trip #bristleconepine #whitemountain #whitemountains #greatbasinbristleconepine #subalpineforest #ancienttrees #treesgiveuslife #treesgiveusoxygen #amazingbeauty #amazingbeing #ivanhernandezphotography

There is a common misconception that Bristlecone trees at Patriarch Grove are the oldest. Either because they're more remote, or at a higher elevation. Truth is, these trees top out at "only" 1,600 years old - that's 3,000 years younger than those at Schulman Grove. #themoreyouknow 💫🌈

One of the things about Bristlecone Pines that makes them one of my favorite trees is the wide palate of colors in the wood, from nearly black to white, and rich tones of sepia in between. People hiking the trails with me must have found me odd to stop and photograph the bark up close, but I just found that so many trees caught my attention with their patterns and quirks. Posting several of them here for those very few macro treebark friends! #macrophotography #treebark #woodpatterns #hikingadventures #bristleconepine #ancientbristleconepineforest #oldesttree #oldesttreesintheworld #oldestlivingthings #inyonationalforest #inyo #roadtrip #hiking #naturephotography #treelover #pinetrees #pinuslongaeva #greatbasinbristleconepine #bishopca #highway395 #route395 #roadtripusa #i💚trees #texture #macro

Hiking the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest really makes you think about the scale of time. Next to 4,000 and 5,000 year old trees, you also find young trees with little cones about to start another generation. Amazing to think that (with any luck) this little cone will create a tree that will exist on this earth for thousands of years after I pass on. #whitemountains #naturephotography #bristleconepine #bristlecone #Pinuslongaeva #greatbasinbristleconepine #oldestlivingthings #oldesttreesintheworld #ancientbristleconepineforest #hikingadventures #explorenature #getoutside #route395 #californiahiking #natureart #pinetrees #treelover #pinecone #inyonationalforest #easternsierras #owensvalley #schulmangrove #methuselahtrail

Admiring a Pinus longaeva (Great Basin Bristlecone Pine) at the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest🌲 🌳 🌿. Did you know that the oldest trees in the world (4000+ years old) live up here @ 10,000 ft. a.s.l.?! Seriously, nature is cool.

This Great Basin Bristlecone Pine lounges over the Hoodoos in Bryce Canyon. This pine is a long-living species found in six states. Methuselah, a 4845 year old tree living in the White Mountains is thought to be the oldest non-clonal tree in the world. They get thier twisted and tortured look as they often die in portions. When the roots become exposed, they will dry out and die along with the tree directly connected above. The rest of the tree will live, with some in the most favorable conditions growing to 60ft (18.2m). ____________

There is an intense feeling of calm in this 4000 year old living tree. In order to survive a harsh environment, be calm. We have so much to learn from this gracious mentor. #oldtreesknowstuff #nature #greatbasinbristleconepine #livelong #legacy #yinyang #ifeltthepower #walkinthewoods #calm #environment #zen
