I didn't know it was that old. The Bristlecone
pine comes to mind, but that's in Nevada.

Excuse me, please. A SP member sent me a photo of a "bronze moose." It was taken somewhere in northern Utah. Any idea where this photo might of been taken? It wasn't at that new Cabelas in Lehi, was it? Oh, boy.

Here's the link!

Yep, it's old. The sign located near the Jardine Juniper says it has been living for 3,200 years. Bristlecone Pines are very old too. I think "Methuselah" was around 4,700 years old.

The photo of the moose is from Snowbasin Ski Resort. Dean must have taken it when he climbed Mount Ogden.
