I have wanted to see the ancient Bristlecone Pines on our western trips for many years. Because they grow in such high elevations and in such isolated areas, we had never gone to see them. We were only a couple of hours away from this forest, so I was determined to see them on this trip. The forest is located at 10,000 feet in elevation up a long, winding road.
