World's Oldest Tree

I can't imagine standing there in the middle of nowhere for 10,000 years. I'm reminded of the opening of T.S Eliot's "The Wasteland"

And I saw with my own eyes the Cumaean Sybil herself, hanging in a bottle, and when the little boy asked her, 'Sybil, what do you want?' she answered 'I want to die' – Petronius The Satyricon

The gods granted Sybil eternal life, but she continued to age. Eventually she was so shriveled up they kept her in a bottle. Be careful what you wish for.
