Photographer's Note

Utah's mountains are full of aspens. This time of year, they all turn a glorious yellow. My kids like to call this particular area "fairy land" with the leaves both in the trees and on the ground adding to create a magical effect.

Since aspens clone themselves and groves are composed of interconnected trees, the trees in a single grove are, technically, one living organism, creating one of the largest and oldest living organisms in the world.
