Near the California-Nevada border, high in the White Mountains, there are bristlecone pines (Pinus longaeva) that have lived longer than any other tree in the world. Some trees in this forest have stood for nearly 5,000 years in their subalpine groves. Visitors to Methusela Ridge and to the Patriarch Grove walk among trees that appeared as early human civilizations were just emerging. A stroll among these ancient bristlecone pines brings you into the living presence of history."A Day in the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest" is a collection of stunning photographs showcasing the trees through the seasons of the year as they are sculpted by wind, ice, and time. In these images from the ancient forest, veteran Eastern Sierra landscape photographer Dennis Flaherty explores his vision of nature as art. Accompanying the photographs are short essays by Mark Schlenz, a noted environmental writer, in which he reflects upon the life-cycle and extraordinary longevity of the bristlecone pines. Schlenz traces their contributions to science and to interpretations of human history, and explores their transformation by nature's forces into objects of great beauty.
