Pinus muricata, Bishop Pine

This one was found in Swami’s Meditation Garden in Encinitas, CA. This tree is magnificent. From underneath, which was all I could see from within the garden, it appeared to have no needles left on the tree. I did manage to find a few to photograph that I could reach. I was not able to see the upper portion of the canopy so have no idea of the health of this beauty. From underneath it, one can see hundreds of pine cones and large meandering branches spread out everywhere. I wanted to climb everywhere, but out of respect, I just admired its magnificence and took photos.
