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.
