Bristlecone Pine Grove, Great Basin National Park, Nevada, USA

Bristlecone pines grow in several locations throughout Great Basin National Park.  Hikers on the way to Wheeler Peak pass through a grove on their climb.  Those taking a break from long strenuous peak hikes can visit the more reasonable 3 mile Bristlecone Grove trail that starts from the upper scenic drive parking lot.  The park service has placed signs providing information about the trees and giving ages for some.  Several are over 3000 years old.  

The towering cliffs around the cirque of Wheeler glacier provide an impressive backdrop to the ancient pines.

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
