The Fall Collection: Aspens

The mountains of Colorado are alive with glorious aspens and evergreens. The aspens spread their golden glory throughout the hills, hinting at what was inside and coveted by many in the rich mountains. Today, color peepers travel to the San Juan’s from all over in search of gold, not the nuggets of fame and fortune of the past, but to witness the wonder of these amazing trees with golden leaves and beautiful white trunks.

In times of drought, such as we have experienced this year, the aspens yield a stunning display of gold, orange, red, and yellow. This post is a tribute to the wonder and diverse nature of these beautiful trees.

“Shimmering Aspens” is my favorite in this series. Which is yours?
