The world’s largest Aspen grove is supposedly in Central Colorado.
Aspens grow new trees and spread throughout a region using its underground root system.
So when you look at an Aspen grove, you are only seeing the individual trees above the ground.
Below it is a complex organism connected to the Aspen trees in the immediate area.
Pretty cool, right?
The video is of the supposed largest Aspen grove in the world.
It covers a number of valley and mountain peaks in the region and was impossible for me to film all at once.
(Well, unless you have a plane. Then I guess it would be easy.)

Wow! How lovely!
Jennifer Steck says
I had no idea Colorado had the largest aspen grove. I live in Colorado so I’m going to find it. 🙂
Jennifer — It’s outside of Buena Vista if that helps.
Cathy Kennedy says
What beautiful trees! I love the contrast between the aspen bark and vivid blue sky ~ gorgeous!
Cathy Chester says
Spring has sprung? Really? Somewhere in the world trees are budding?
No. Not really. I took these pictures last spring and had them tucked in my pocket for when I really needed the promise of Spring. Buds should start appearing in about a month.

So nice to see trees that are budding as it give me hope that someday all our snow may melt after all.

Feed Me Dearly says
What a pretty place! Thanks for sharing! 🙂
We are weeks away from pretty buds like those.
Beautiful shots – my fave is the last one!
Well you learn something new every day Jennifer,
I have aspen trees at the edge of our boundary too.
You’re photos are great and I’ve now put Colorado on my list of places still to visit.
Waving from a sunny springy Bonnie Scotland ;D
Thanks for hosting!
Yeah! So glad you’re adding Colorado to your list. It’s such a wonderful place — not to be missed!
Aspens will never look the same. Thanks!
Oh, and I tuck spring photos away for this time of year too. I know that technically the first of spring is right around the corner, but it is so hard to believe it when the world is icy white.
Couldn’t agree more, Sheryl. The never-ending block of ice (that is our driveway) makes me wonder if spring is ever going to get here!
It’s nice to see a blue sky we don’t see it often in London LOL
I’m actually based in Chicago — and trust me. During the winter, the gray skies are endless.
