Hiking through the oldest living beings, you get a sense of wonder and awe as to how these trees manage to live in conditions that seem to defy life. Unfortunately, a few trees were burned during a fire a few years ago, which goes to show that even these ancient trees are not immortal.  So if you have a chance, take a day to explore Bristlecone Pine Forest for yourself and get a look at the oldest living tree, Methuselah.
