We love our aspens!
They provide for us a perfect ski playground.
Naturally spaced to perfection,
inviting us to make plenty of turns in the powder snow shaded
just enough by the white branches that it remains soft and fluffy
much longer than snow on open slopes of similar aspect, the elevation
our aspens thrive in also helps to make them the perfect setting
for dancing down a mountain. They become as much a dance partner
as a person at those moments. Make no mistake they lead and we,
as skiers must follow, each turn a dance step, each opening a
chance to add our track to the dance.
