Slow and Steady

Great Basin National Park in Nevada is the home of the Bristlecone Pines, the oldest known living things on the earth. Be sure to take the 3 mile round trip hike to see these slow and steady monuments of time.

Directions: Either on your way in or on your way out of Great Basin National Park, take a quick side trip to this site to see where the Fremont Indians used to live. Here, you will find a Native American symbol of longevity, hiding under the flat rock in front of the left side post of the main sign as you reach the site.
