Bristlecone Pine Forest – The oldest living trees in the world

Just an one hour drive away from Bishop up in the White Mountains there is one of the most magical forests I have seen so far. The Bristlecone Pine Forest is between 3000m and 3500m above sealevel and contains the oldest living things on this planet. The oldest tree they found here is about 4600 years old. That means that this tree already lived when mankind build the pyramids.

These trees faced a lot in their lives. Wind, cold, snow and ice formed the trees in sometimes realy weird shapes.

So here are some pictures of these magical place!
