Sunday Nature Stills – 05/29/2022 Posted on May 29, 2022May 8, 2022 by Michael Fuchs Photography There is something neat about spending time with things in nature that transcend human lifespans. These bristlecone pines are some of the oldest known individual living tree species. Some trees in this grove are over 4,700 years old. It’s neat to think of these trees as little seedlings 200 years before the pyramids at Giza were built. Although some of the bristlecone groves are very well known, it is neat to run across a small grove in the middle of nowhere in the high mountains. A few times we have sat in a grove and had lunch while out hiking high in the Sierras, and it’s just neat to think of how our modern world is just a tiny moment in time to the tree we are sitting next to.

I really like seeing their intricate, twisted shapes and the variation in those forms in trees that are close to one another.
I’ve always wanted to see ancient trees. Your wonderful photo is the next thing to being there. And I much enjoyed your narrative.
