The world’s largest Aspen grove is supposedly in Central Colorado. Aspens grow new trees and spread throughout a region using its underground root system. So when you look at an Aspen grove, you are only seeing the individual trees above the ground. Below it is a complex organism connected to the Aspen trees in the immediate area. Pretty cool, right?

The video is of the supposed largest Aspen grove in the world. It covers a number of valley and mountain peaks in the region and was impossible for me to film all at once. (Well, unless you have a plane. Then I guess it would be easy.)

  7. What beautiful trees! I love the contrast between the aspen bark and vivid blue sky ~ gorgeous!

  8. Spring has sprung? Really? Somewhere in the world trees are budding?

    Lovely photos!

    • No. Not really. I took these pictures last spring and had them tucked in my pocket for when I really needed the promise of Spring. Buds should start appearing in about a month.

    Thanks for hosting!

  18. Aspens will never look the same. Thanks!

    Oh, and I tuck spring photos away for this time of year too. I know that technically the first of spring is right around the corner, but it is so hard to believe it when the world is icy white.

  19. It’s nice to see a blue sky we don’t see it often in London LOL
