The Ancient Forest

Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest, California

The Methuselah Tree, the oldest in the forest, is over 5,000 years old. It started growing around the time of the founding of Troy. Its location is kept secret to protect the tree. I liked the peek-a-boo view of this much younger tree, located in the Schulman Grove about 13 miles from the Patriarch Grove.
