Under a deep blue sky, a bristlecone pine stands out of the forest, its red bark saturated in the sun's rays. The ancient bristlecone pine forest in the White Inyo Mountains of California, the second highest chain of peaks in California, contains trees thought to be the oldest living organisms on earth. At over 4600 years old, the oldest tree predates the Great Pyramids in Giza, Egypt. The sparse forest grows at high altitude (over 10,000 feet) in rocky soil.
