California: Creative Images From The Inyo And White Mountains

I have a special affinity for the Californian landscape since I was born and raised there. It is one of the most incredibly diverse landscapes I have ever been to, including deserts, dramatic mountain peaks, rugged coastlines, and some of the most awe inspiring forests and trees in the world.

The Inyo and White Mountains, located just east of the Sierra Nevada and across the Owen's Valley, offer a spectacular high desert landscape with commanding views of the snowy Sierra. Located in the White Mountains is the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest, home to the oldest single living organism on the planet, the 4,482 year old Methuselah Tree (as of 2011).
