10. Bristlecone Pine Forest
Okay folks, some of you maybe aren’t aware of this, but the White Mountains of Cali are home to this incredible, 4,846-year-old bristlecone pine. This thing is a natural tourist attraction like few others in the state, and the nation as well, to be honest.
Like, how often do you get to see a nearly 5,000-year-old tree? It’s actually called Methuselah and it’s situated in what’s known as the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest, which, by the way, makes for an incredible adventure for on-foot travelers. So, here’s an idea: why not explore this forest situated high above the desert floor firsthand and travel its gentle trails on a particular weekend? Come on, you know you want to.
