I went to Death Valley to ride the Furnace Creek Spring Tour. On the way back, I stopped at the bristlecone pines.
Furnace Creek Spring Tour - on the road
It was cold, but we were cheerful
Great Scott - I could have had a v8!

A view of the Sierras

Home of the bristlecone pines
Bristlecone pine cones!
A bristlecone, barely alive
A bristlecone, more alive
A bristlecone, dead!
More tortured wood
