Wooh! Man that was a good trip! Alright I’m back up and running! First up, this here tree is personally my favorite tree and the state tree of Nevada. The Great Basin Bristlecone Pine are some of the oldest living things on the planet; one particular tree is more than 5,000 years old! These trees thrives in arid, high mountain, and bitter soils that most plants couldn’t handle. Truly nature out did itself on this one!

Paying our respects to the oldest trees on the planet 🙌

When in California, we go look at Nevada’s state tree #greatbasinbristleconepine #pinuslongaeva #oldesttreesintheworld #methuselah

This dead Great Basin Bristlecone Pine tree from Utah is my Model Inspiration for two key scenes in BOOK 11 - BRIDES OF DIABLO: CAUGHT IN THE MIDDLE - ADA. My heroine Gary - Model Inspiration - Ryan Gosling - brought this dead tree from Utah to symbolize that like the tree, he is dead, but still living. The raining stars will be included in the second key scene. The canyon in the background will not be included since that's in Utah. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pinus_longaeva

It finally happened! Got to walk among, touch and sit for some moments among these ancient ones!! Such a beautiful day in this final weekend of the trail being open this year... meeting these ancient Bristlecones is something so breathtaking (of the soul, heart and the altitude!!). Trees in this grove having begun as long ago as 11,000 years ago 😲, and some still alive tipping the age of 5,000 years. They grow so incredibly slowly that one that appears to be a sapling baby may actually be as old as 300 years!! (up to 300 growth rings in an inch! - although most grow as “much” as one inch/diameter/100 years! So humbling to meet 💚). These truly remarkable beings thrive best in only less-than-welcoming environments, where most other plants cannot ever grow. It’s unreal to see their shallow roots (these trees often no deeper than a foot below the Earth’s surface...) clinging to rocky dolomitic soils for millennia with virtually no rainfall. Truly resilient, magical precious beings they are!!! ✨🌳✨😍

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
