gray pine ~ 06/09/11 ~ Pinnacles

gray pine
Pinus sabiniana

Gray pine cones are much bigger than the Monterey pine cones which I am more familiar with closer to home. I inadvertently discovered this while driving over a gray pine cone during a previous trip to Pinnacles. The very loud crunch, knock, knock, and scrape sounds let me know the bottom of my car did not easily clear the massive cone.
