Our Natural World: Colorado's Oldest Living

By Doug Nichols Berthoud Recorder Have you met one of Colorado’s oldest living residents? No, it is not that cranky, old guy down the street; it is the bristlecone pine.

I liked the name for what it implied and took interest in becoming part of an event seemingly designed to find a cure for diabetes. I asked my friend if he knew how much money raised was applied to find a cure — he didn't know. Based on the ... Full Story
