"Frosty Bristlecone" --- Here are a couple hardy Bristlecone Pine near 9,000 ft. elevation in the Colorado Rockies. This was on a spring day 2018 during which winter made a late visit, bringing freezing wind, ice fog, snow, and frost. It's amazing to me how these trees can eke out a living from a crack in the granite on an exposed mountain top!
