The only whitebark pine I found on this ridge, it has been underburned, maybe one stem of the clump may survive, Tower Fire, Washington. There may be a few additional trees around but I did not see any. Location approximate within 200 feet.
Seemed to be the only pine species along most of Bishop Pass Trail
Confirmed from cones on low tree. This is also a historic location in museum records (a.k.a. "Lambert" Dome). Mountain hemlock also in general vicinity.

Pinus albicaulis, with many common names including whitebark pine, white pine, pitch pine, scrub pine, and creeping pine, occurs in the mountains of the Western United States and Canada, specifically the subalpine areas of the Sierra Nevada, the Cascade Range, the Pacific Coast Ranges, and the Rocky Mountains from Wyoming through the Continental Ranges. It shares the common name creeping pine with several other "creeping pine" plants.
