Road to Bristlecone Pines, White Mountains

A lot of the time when I travel I don't have certain times to take photograph's, so I shoot no matter what time of day it is. I always have a circular polarizing filter on my camera. I forget to get my Gradual Neutral Grey Filter out to use. The view is the road we came up on and the mountains in the distance is Mt.Whitney, and the Sierra Nevada's. This road is such a fun road, it is 45min. to the top where the bristlecone pines trailhead begin. I'll have some photo's coming up of the bristlecone pine's.

The bristlecone pines are three species of pine trees. Some bristlecone pine individuals are more than 5,000 years old and are the oldest known individuals of any species. This is the only tree I ever hug, because I know God walked here.
