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 as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

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.
