I'll be back...

It was remarkable to walk among this grove of trees, this was only my second encounter. You can find some more about bristlecone pines at en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bristlecone_pine

"The Wheeler Peak bristlecone pine grove, the most accessible grove in the park, is located on the northeast side of Wheeler Peak. It is unusual in that it grows on a glacial moraine consisting of quartzite boulders. Most groves grow on limestone or dolomite. The northeastern exposure of the Wheeler Peak grove is also unusual as most other groves have a generally southern or western exposure. "
