View of Bristlecone Pine trunk in
Winter on the flank of Wheeler Peak in Great Basin National Park in Nevada.
The severe weather in this place takes it's toll on the trees, and even though
about 500 feet lower in elevation there was about 9 feet of snow, it is much
thinner at this place. In this grove are some of the oldest trees living on
the face of the Earth. Image made in March on a Hasselblad and Ektachrome
