Personally, Short Story

The Worlds Oldest Tree

I was   listening on a Swedish radio   show with live stories all around the nature.

This morning It was a story from fjällen, the swedish scandic mountain range. The place was Fulufjället mountain,   and the report was telling about Old Tjikko.

The old spruce ¬†has 9500 years old roots and is the world’s oldest organism.

The old tree tells a story about hiking and survival, about 1500 years before it took root high up on the mountain, so ended the ice age.

I am full of wonder and respect for the Old  Tjikko. One day, I would like to visit  this Survivor.
