Death Valley and the Bristlecone pines
16 - 22 April 2002

I went to Death Valley to ride the Furnace Creek Spring Tour. On the way back, I stopped at the bristlecone pines.

It was cold, but we were cheerful
Great Scott - I could have had a v8!

The bristlecones only live in dolomitic soil
Home of the bristlecone pines
Bristlecone pine cones!
A bristlecone, barely alive
A bristlecone, more alive
A bristlecone, dead!
Tortured wood
