|It was an honor to stand beside these awesome trees,|
beings that were alive before the pyramids were built,
before Christ was born.....
|hiking along over red and black rocks of an ancient sea bed|
|not all the standing trees were alive|
but their sculptural shapes were as beautiful in death
|Owen's valley far below with the majestic Sierra Nevada's rising above|
|since these trees don't decay at this altitude, this tree may have died in the 1600's|
and is still a thing of beauty today
|nimble hiker taking a break...|
(shhh, don't tell)
|Bristlecone pines can loose most of their bark and still send out new branches|
I guess I'll try doing the blog in the morning while we're here in Bishop. The internet is working at its usual speed at this time in the day.
