Lean into its bark and take a deep breath. That's not butterscotch you're smelling, it's the natural scent from the bark of the older Ponderosa Pines.
These wise old giants can live up to 500 years old and grow hundreds of feet tall. The history and changes they have been around for are hard to comprehend. But here they stand with their long tap roots enduring harsh winters and wildfires.
These trees provide food and shelter to numerous wildlife species like the Red Squirrel. Stand underneath one and pause, it's hard not to feel a little calmer and more connected to the world around you.
