They are gorgeous trees :nod: not too many stands around here so we had to take advantage of this one next to the road :D I've been hearing about areas of the northern edges of Lake Tahoe where they're clearing pine to plant aspens :wow:

All I can say, anytime I hear of the government's doing something like this:
"You can't fool with Mother Nature."
As much as I love the aspens, I always question the wisdom of fooling around with Mother.

I agree but the whole Tahoe basin and area has been deforested many times since the 1850's/gold rush times so it is hard to say if that would be tampering or restoring :shrug:

All these are so pretty! I told my daughter that when I die, I"m to be cremated and then planted with a tree seed. I told her I wanted to be an aspen and be planted in Maine! :D

What a great idea!!!!

On a related note we've always made our "pet cemetery" under what ever tree in our "yard" was our favorite :iconlovenodplz:

LOL, had to take advantage of this cluster - stopped at the side of the empty road and before we'd gotten more than a couple shots there were five more cars with photographers there with us - snagging our shots :shakefist: (:giggle:)

yep! the general valley is the main collection of aspen in the western Sierras so everyone out looking for fall color eventually drives through...
