As part of the solar eclipse trip I went on back in August, our tour group also got to spend a day in Rocky Mountain National Park. It was an amazing experience, particularly since I had never really seen large mountains before. As we rode the tour bus up Trail Ridge Road, aspen trees were everywhere at the middle elevations. Higher up, they faded away and were replaced with an ever-shrinking evergreen forest, which finally turned to tundra at the treeline. Here, we see the aspen groves, growing in little clumps as they do, in fall.
