makes no mention of any subspecies with needles this long.
I’m not familiar with the pines of the American southwest in detail. I’m familiar with lodgepole, as it’s a staple native tree here. Pinyon is certainly possible. The mountains in the southwest tend to form fairly isolated regions — speciation has run rampant, and there are some 12 pines that appear to be closely related. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pinyon_pine
