r Having strong roots is important in life, and it is aptly illustrated in this photo taken on a nearby mountain road. Aspen trees grow as a colony – young and old trees – from a common root system like a family. They stand tall and proudly reach for the sky. With their leaves shimmering in the wind, they have been given the popular name “Quaking Aspens.” Aspen trees are found in all 29 counties in Utah and are our Utah State Tree.
