More Golden Aspen

For Scenic Sunday, here are more aspen photos from last weekend's hike in Horsethief Park. There weren't many good stands of golden aspen, but I found one.
Here are a couple of close-ups.
I liked the pine tree in the middle of these aspen; in a couple of weeks it will be much more visible.
Finally, here's a wide shot of the valley up which I hiked to see these aspen. To get back to the road, you'd hike down to the base of the pine-covered mountain, turn right, and hike downhill for another half-mile.
For more landscapes and other scenic shots, visit Scenic Sunday.

  11. Wow that sky and those trees. What beauty. A year in a yoga class couldn't benefit one like a day in your county. Love your colours and the composition. Carla
