Colorado’s Aspen Trees, the Largest Living Organisms on Earth
When most of us think of aspens, we think of Colorado. Not just our famous mountain town of Aspen but the beautiful native trees that provide much of Colorado with its stunning fall colors. Colorado’s Aspen Trees, the Largest Living Organisms on Earth, run the entire length of the Rocky Mountains. Although Canada has large aspen groves, Colorado will give them a run for their money as we’ve got more aspens and in thicker concentrations than anywhere in the entire United States. Aspen trees thrive at elevations starting in the foothills around 5,000 feet all the way up to the high country around 12,000 feet. If you’ve never seen an aspen forest in the fall, you’ve got to add that to your “to do list” on your next fall visit to the Colorado High Country. With their beautiful white bark and brilliant bright gold leaves, our aspens draw “leaf peepers” from around the world to capture their beauty.

And the next time you’re in Crested Butte in the fall, be sure to bring your camera and capture the natural beauty of our golden aspens.
