Patriarch Grove-Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest, California
Time Traveler is high in the Patriarch Grove (12,000 ft.) of the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest in California's White Mountains. This bristlecone is not tall yet, however note the thick and massive trunk. Maybe it was a sapling when Cristopher Columbus landed at the Bahamas in 1492? Photo © copyright by Frank LeBlanc.
