I found myself in the Kebler aspen forest. I hadn't really intended to stop, but Aspen trees are flashy. They are tall skinny attractive blondes (at this time of the year). They go out with a bang in the fall, with their green leaves changing to gold, before falling to the ground.
The aspens are losing their hair!
If only we were this excited about receding hairlines in humans. I guess the trouble with humans, is once that hair is gone, it ain't coming back.
