Aspen grove, against grey clouds on Highway 17, at the Cumbres Pass, Colorado. Four hours drive away from yesterday’s photo of the day, just over the state line in Colorado, the colors are doing their thing precisely on time. I’ve photographed this scene many times over the last few years. It continues to be a favorite location each Autumn when the aspens light up the hills in the Rocky Mountains. Interesting fact, aspens grow from one root system. They are the largest living organism on the planet. Thanks for looking. G

I seem to recall this stand of trees from one of our tours. Thanks for including the information about how aspens grow. This is one of those images that has me reaching for my jacket. 🙂
We most certainly did, and probably a few times chasing the train. Thanks Ron, I’ll get your coat! G
Adams had his lone aspen, you have your lone aspen grove. Stunning.
I’ll take that Larry. Thank you so much. G
