Do you ever feel so full of awe and peace that you just might explode? It's been one of those mornings. I woke up and it was just here.
The feeling produced this mornings two blog posts.
This one pertains to one of the most awe inspiring natural features (IMHO) this round ball we live on has to offer.....Bristlecone Pines. "The Bristlecone Pine is a very ancient tree, it is known to be the oldest living organism on earth. The oldest individual bristle cone pine is in California, and is 4,700 years old."
I love wild places as represented in these pictures of mountain top Bristlecone Pine groves, but as in the previous post about Japanese Gardens, when it comes to humans capturing/recreating the serenity I feel while in wild places...Japanese Gardens come as close as you can get for me.
