Great Basin is a diverse land from desert and forests to tall peaks to streams that flow inward and never reach the ocean.  Visitors can hike to a glacier, stargaze, take a scenic drive, look for pictographs, fish in a creek, see over 800 different plants, and even explore a cave.  But one of the most memorable and awe-inspiring experiences is a quiet walk among the oldest trees in the world: the Ancient Bristlecone Pines.  These gnarled, twisted, and wind-polished tress can live to be almost 5,000 years old!  Amazing!  Using colors that evoke a feeling  of solitude at twilight, this beanie combines two of the park’s most famous features…Bristlecone Pines and incredibly dark skies.  Add stars to your sky-scape using silver or sparkly beads that are knitted in or sewn on afterwards.
