Bristlecone Pine Trees grow in the White Mountains of California's Eastern Sierra. Bristlecones are the oldest living things on Earth. Some trees are over 4,000 years old. They survive in a dry climate up around 12,000 feet. This ancient life is truly amazing.  

There is one campground located within 30 minutes of the best groves of Bristlecones. It is up at 9200 feet. Bring everything you'll need. There are limited facilities.  

I was not properly adjusted for hiking around at such a high altitude. I left sea level in the morning and was running around at 12,000 feet that night. Altitude sickness can be a real concern when visiting the Bristlecone Pines. Bring plenty of water and go slow. Give your body a chance to adjust to the lack of oxygen before reaching the groves at the highest altitudes. Return to a lower elevation at Lone Pine if you begin to feel funny. Some people stay a night at Mono Lake in order to help acclimate themselves before reaching the highest elevations. 

The full moon was rising the night I arrived. The sky turned shades of purple and pink. The next morning there was a clear sunrise and blue skies. Clouds arrived in time for a colorful sunset that night. This was a memorable trip. I must go again.
