Ancient bristlecone pine tree, roots spread wide and exposed over dolomite-rich soil, rising above the arid slopes of the Schulman Grove in the White Mountains at an elevation of 9500 above sea level, along the Methuselah Walk.  The oldest bristlecone pines in the world are found in the Schulman Grove, some of them over 4700 years old. Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest, Pinus longaeva, White Mountains, Inyo National Forest

California fuschia, Batiquitos Lagoon, Carlsbad, California.  A member of the primrose family.  Local tribes occasionally ate seeds of this species, while leaves and roots were sometimes boiled and eaten.  Settlers gathered seeds and used them as a natural remedy for a variety of illnesses, effectively, since this species contains gamma-linoleic acid, Epilobium cana

The Tennessee Tree shows resilience to fire damage, continuing to thrive in spite of deep fire scars. The living tissue or cambium layer of a sequoia lies just under its bark. As long as some of this thin, living tissue connects the leaves above with the roots below, the tree will continue to live. If undisturbed by people, or more fire, this living layer will eventually heal the fire scars seen on this tree. Grant Grove, Sequoiadendron giganteum, Sequoia Kings Canyon National Park, California
