The Largest Organism in the World

aspen2_paulies

Fall in the mountains of Colorado can be a spectacular.  A large draw for many sightseers and tourists is the changing colors of the aspen leaves.  Colors may vary from golds, to yellows, and even some reds and oranges.  All the trees in a single aspen grove can be made up of one single organism covering acres and acres of ground.  The trees are connected through their root system.

I wanted to share these photos of autumn aspen taken near my home in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado.  The colors reach their peak intensity near the end of September here.

    This is a beautiful shot. You can almost feel the leaves changing in front of you. I have seen your other aspen photos for sale, but not this one. Can this be purchased?
