<i>Borne of Leaves Decaying</i>

In the shadow of pine-covered Sugarloaf Peak, Quaking aspen follow the
changing of the season.

Here, aspen groves share space with Ponderosa pines.

At an elevation of 8,600 feet, the large number of trees provides a
diversity of forest floor and meadow habitats for shrubs, grasses and
wildflowers. Soil moisture here is not as severely depleted during early
summer drought as in lower zones, allowing many high-elevation plants to
flourish.
