These Gods Part II


Well hot diggity, I didn't realize how out of control behind I was on this blog thing. I've still got lots of pictures from the Truckee field season and quite a few from the White Mountains. Huh. So here's another Bristlecone fix (there will be more). I was happy to see some again in Northern Nevada about a month ago. They seemed to be significantly younger than a lot in the Whites but I was still mesmerized by them as usual. (These pictures are all from the White Mts). Outdoor Wednesday
(one of the many marmots hanging around)

These bristlecones always fascinate me. How they can hang on so long, grow in such a difficult climate, dodge lightning strikes and still feed your chubby-cheeked friends?

I really love the close up of the twisted tree. This is the kidn of tre you can take 100s of photos and never come up with 2 similar ones :)

I love the trees and wood and all the colors in them. We have some interesting ones near us but more spindly. I'd like to take photos of them but the traffic roars by.

Love those ancient bristlecones. Just saw some at Bryce Canyon. Then when doing research on them I discovered the oldest living bristlecone is found in a "secret" place in the White Mts of eastern California. Wonder if you got to see it?

Great captures, especially like the close up.

I absolutely LOVE the bristlecone pines you found. I've never seen one in real life ... or if I did I didn't know what it was! Wow, they're amazing!

Janie said...

I love the gnarled bark of the bristlecones. That's an adorable little marmot.

Carver said...
