Rule #18: Limber up⁣ ⁣ Be prepared. Nothing will slow you down like a pulled muscle. Tell that to the limber pine living on the edge at Utah’s Bryce Canyon. Is it moving? The Limber pine (Pinus flexilis) is a very durable tree and grows near timberline, from 5,000 to 12,000 feet. This pine has a short, thick trunk with an irregular crown and can develop a stunted, zombie-like, twisted form, very low to the ground. The Limber Pine's branches are so limber that they can be bent double without breaking, a distinct advantage in withstanding severe winds and snow loads. Thus concludes today’s lesson on the Limber pine. Rule #32: Enjoy the Little Things – It’ll help you keep your sanity.⁣ ⁣ Image: Limber pine with exposed roots and rainbow in the background.
