Ya know, sometimes you just need a little nudge to get around to gettin’ things done! We visited Twisted Forest two weeks ago and my photos were still sitting on my camera. So, when I saw Nancy’s photo challenge of “Twisted”, that was just the nudge I needed to download these photos, so I could join in the challenge!
This short hike (but somewhat steep in some areas) was amazing! You get to walk through a forest of bristlecone pines, which are the oldest known species of pine trees! Some of these trees are thousands of years old (yeah, I know they look it, too!) The terrain at the bottom of the trail looks like a scene from a movie:
Then you hike up…and up…and up…and this is your view over the ledge!
A great view of Cedar Breaks National Monument! I’m happy to have hiked a NEW trail. Now on to other Newness. Have a great weekend!
