At Over 80,000 Years Old, One Of The Oldest Trees In The World Is Found In Utah

Did you know that the Beehive State is home to one of the world’s oldest trees? It’s true, and you can see it in the Fishlake National Forest, not far from the town of Richfield.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

Have you seen Pando in person? We’d love to see your photos and hear about your adventures in the Fishlake National Forest. Learn more about his forest on its webpage on the U.S. Forest Service’s website.
