Needle Benchmark in the Home Mountain Range of utah. This tree was around the 9300 feet mark and it looks like someone did some surgery on a couple of its limbs. However, i couldn't resist the shot. There were several other Bristlecone trees nearby but none had this symnetry. There is a nice young group of Bristlecone trees near the summit of Needle Benchmark. Well, by young, they might only be several hundred years old. I truly love these special trees.
