near Telluride, Colorado
Many of you have experienced the beauty of aspen trees in winter during your visits to Colorado. There is something enchanting about the straight, tall, white trunks blending into a snowy background. Far removed from their brilliant fall colors, the aspens are content to spend the winter dormant and wait for the warmth of spring. As shown in this image, dense stands of aspens in canyons often grow amazingly tall as they reach for nourishing sunlight.
