Such an interesting shape, sort of a metaphor for the twists and turns that life takes.

If you ever get a chance, check out the bristlecones in Great Basin National Park way out in eastern Nevada.

Weathered or sea churned or petrified, wood is always beautiful.

The natural sculpture is a hell of lot more interesting and worth looking at than most man made sculptures...that’s for sure!

I think if I saw that I'd be both mystified and terrified, but I'm really weird.

I wonder if anyone has ever mistaken a bristlecone for a snake. Would love to see one up close after seeing your photo.

That is amazing to me. Almost like a sculpture. It's incredible that it ended its life naturally like that.
