King Clone Creosote Bush – Death Valley Jim – Guide to the Mojave Desert, Death Valley, Joshua Tree

Scientific research has indicated that the creosote bush is the oldest living organism on earth. This particular ring (looks more like a rectangle to me), known as King Clone Creosote Bush is the oldest known creosote in existence, at over 11,700 years old. This makes it older than the ancient bristlecone pine trees, and red wood trees.
