Here is another small work from my recent trip to Utah. The Aspen trees were at their peak in some areas and had already lost their golden crowns in other areas. This one was showing off by standing alone in this sun drenched meadow. Aspen leaves quake in the breeze, much like our midwest cottonwoods do, but they also have beautiful white bark that allows them to soak up the sun year round. They also send up new trees from a single root system, so are actually clones of one another.
