Bristle Cone Pine
June Lake Mono County California

Fine art photograph of a bristlecone pine at June Lake California by landscape photographer Paul Heckel.

Photograph Details:
I had been traveling north through the Sierra Nevadas on 395 and spent the night in Lee Vining California. An unexpected winter storm forced me to leave early. Fortunately, I found June Lake. This bristle cone looked surveyed the lake from its perch on the lakes north west boundary.

“Some species of bristlecone pines can live 5,000 years. That’s difficult to comprehend. Just think what this tree has seen.”
