Bristlecones

For my mother this christmas, I did a marker drawing of a bristlecone pine. Earlier this year we went on a trip to see them along with some other sights in the west of the USA, these trees are her favorite. The oldest living non-clonal organisms on the planet! The oldest is over 5000 years old! When we were there, in the shadow of one of the trees, we even saw a couple of tiny tiny baby trees! Being up so high above sea level was wild--this was in October, and there was no snow where we were, but we could see snowy peaks from where we were.
