Re: Nice!

Thank you. There are lots of nice ones along the Griffith-Charleston ridgeline and the North Loop trail. Cheers.

I've heard

that Bristlecone pines are the oldest living things on earth? Some are as old as 5000 years old. This one looks like it's dead, but the roots may not be totally dead, and someday it might even begin to sprout leaves. Do you think it's possible?

Re: I've heard

I'm not sure Marc, but his one may be "too" dead for this to happen.
