Bristlecone Pine

Imagine being born 3200 years ago! At that time, Deborah would have been a prophetess in Israel and ancient Egypt would have been the superpower. That was also when this gnarled tree, now carved, chiseled and sculpted by wind and time was born.

Today, it still clings to life in a tiny forest scattered among other very old bristlecone pines, high above the Great Basin at Great Basin National Park in Nevada.

Meandering along the Cold Springs Nature Trail, Picture #3

It’s always fun meeting new people on the trail. These two ladies were the only other ones we saw the morning my husband and I hiked the Cold Springs Nature Trail. We took turns passing each other while pausing every so often to gaze upon the beauty of nature.DSC_0048

Best Easy Day Hikes Sequoia & Kings Canyon

513KlkL0g6L._SX298_BO1,204,203,200_This little book has been the guide to my best adventures in Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks.

Each summer, for the past nine years, I’ve slowly, one by one, hiked one or more of the magnificent trails found in the pages of this book.

Now, I have six left.

If it all works out, next week another one will be explored: The Cold Springs Nature Trail. This trail is located in a part of Sequoia National Park that I have yet to visit. Needless-to-say, I’m very excited about this upcoming adventure.

I hope to post a description of the hike along with pictures next week.

Teddy Bear Cholla


This photo was taken in the Arizona Desert on Route 66 near Oatman, Arizona. I located a picture of this same plant on a website regarding desert life. Near as I can tell, this cactus is classified as Cylindropuntia bigelovii, but more affectionately called “Teddy Bear Cholla.”
