This over 150 year old Lodgepole Pine has been through it all! You name it, it was even cut down in 1900! Yet here it is, twisting and turning, reaching for the light and still standing strong after all these years! A nice reminder that no matter what your beginnings looked like, while they may have changed you a bit, it's never too late to keep growing stronger and reaching further! I personally find this tree and its story quite intriguing and inspiring. This neat tree can be found down Graburn Rd near the Alberta Saskatchewan border in Cypress Hills Alberta.
