Resilient is the best word to describe these trees. One of the longest living life forms on the planet the Bristlecone Pine love harsh environment of high altitudes near 10,000 ft (3300m), here filmed at moonset under starry sky of White Mountains #California, near #Bishop.

When I have children:

Friend: So what are their names?
Me: Mark, Bishop, Jedikiah and Lucy.
Friend: So all names from Mark Pellegrino? Lucy is the only normal name, is that because she’s a girl?
Me: Oh honey no
Friend: ??
Me: Her middle name is Fer

Such an incredible experience getting to rock climb in Bishop, CA this last weekend. Didn’t quite send what i was hoping for but I’ll definitely be back to try some problems again! Always such a good time in the eastern Sierras.

Just now, when I saw you naked again,
I thought the same words: rose-rock; rock-rose…
Rose, trying, working to show itself,
forming, folding over,
unimaginable connections, unseen, shining edges.
