So I have been thinking about Bristlecone Pines for the last several days and looking them up on the internet.
I was driving around my neighborhood in the Salt Lake Valley, and was happily surprised to find a Bristlecone Pine thriving in a neighbors yard! Here are some pictures. And here is a link to info on Bristlecone Pines. It is a very handsome specimen!
