Guess the direction of the prevailing wind...
A rather stressful environment! Sierra Nevada, California, near the headwaters of the Mokelumne River. The lake is Meadow Lake, one of PG&E's storage reservoirs. Map position is approximate.

I think I'd have to believe that is the prevailing wind direction. :) A lovely scene.

Thanks, everyone! Pam, from the scaly bark I think it's some kind of spruce, but I'm not sure.

Thanks Steve. Bristlecones fascinate me.,... but I have never seen a pic of a young one !!! I have only seen one "in person" and that was around 3,500 years old !
