I don't ever remember aspens being around when I grew up in Kellogg. I remember maples and elms, but no aspens. I don't know when I first noticed the beauty of this tree. What I do know is when I have my camera and I am surrounded by these white-barked trees, I could take hundreds of pictures. The marks like eyes always intrigue me. Here are some aspen images from Mazama, Washington last week-end.
