Ancient Neighbors; Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest, California. This tree may be old (4-5000 years) but it is dwarfed in comparison by the 13.2 billion year old Milky Way that watches above. I first shot here back in October of last year when it was 9 degrees out (with fresh cougar tracks in the snow) and made the decision to come back when the threat of death wasn’t as likely. I’m glad I did since the summer MW is brightest this time of year. Enjoy!
