Favorite Photo

Going through some old photos came across this. Thought I had lost it. This is about the 13,000 foot level of Mt Bross. The view is ESE looking towards the town of Alma, CO., and South Park.

At the base of the mountain are Bristlecone Pines, among the oldest living things on Earth. Fortunately they are useless as timber or the pioneer miners would have cut them down for mine props.

Driving a vehicle to this site is strictly forbidden/verboten/penalties will be imposed, etc. 

The truck is a 1984 Mitsubishi Mighty Max 2.3L TurboDiesel 5 speed 4x4. I regret selling it. That is the curse of a car salesman. When someone offers you a very large gross profit, you take the money.
