These aspen trees are justly famous for their blazing fall colors. But I love them in springtime as well. Fluttering in the cool breeze with all the freshness of new growth, their lime green leaves are simply splendid. For me, it's a yearly celebration of life and renewal that never gets old, as inviolate and timeless as Creation itself.
You can find these trees near Silver Jack Reservoir, right off Forest Service Road 858. Standing among them in the sweet mountain air, you'll think that the sum total of all that's beautiful in this world is right here with you. You'll know what it means to be human. And you'll know just how good it feels to be alive - here, in Colorado - on God's green earth.
