Most days are warm and with very cool nights the time of the
aspen is not long lived. Leaves finally give way to wind and gravity falling as gold rain and covering the ground beneath with a beautiful gold carpet interspersed with grrens of browns of grass and reds of Wild Rose and Fireweed. It is all a grand kalidioscope show of nature.
After a rain or when a snow falls and melts the warmth of the day can heighten the senses with a wonderful odor that permeates an Aspen grove that is sweetly pungent and refreshing to the senses. A grand time to hike from grove to grove-taking it all in.
