Aspens - 2

Aspens & Clouds - Utah  2012

Aspen-Covered Mountain - Utah  2012

Really quite spectacular.

Kay told me that the blanketing of a mountaintop by aspens is the result of a "crown fire" wiping out the pine forest. With the pines gone, the aspens can take hold.

Yes, quite spectacular, and thank you for Kay's explanation of the Aspen's presence. Good to know.

You're welcome! Also of interest, do aspens really turn in clusters?
