On Wednesday afternoon we thought we’d try a shortcut to the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest. This is the place we visited on April 5th.
Though it looks like a short drive on a map, it’s a long climb up — 6000 feet. But as they say, the first 3000 feet is easy, and that’s as far as we got. After an hour of slow driving, we turned back because the last 3000 feet was steep with a lot of switchbacks.
We’ll try it again when we have more time.
