    One of my favorite subjects in the high country is weathered trees.  Due to the limited amount of bacteria and fungus at high altitudes, many of these dead trees are hundreds of years old.

    Nicely done.

    If you get into the White mountains in CA, (also in five other states), look for the bristlecone pines. Methuselah is over 4800 years old now. Some 90% dead, but still producing needles.
