Whitebark Pine - Lying Low

Add to Cart
The setting sun has dropped below the horizon and is directly illuminating only Mt. Hood in this photo of a dying whitebark pine. The absence of greenery exposes the structure of this dense mat of branches growing low to the ground that characterize these trees at high altitudes. These mats are dense enough to walk on and provide shelter for small birds and mammals, especially during winter months when high winds are common.
