This is an aspen cluster in the middle of a meadow on the way to Kolob Reservoir.
Can you spot the seaweed?
My childhood friend and companion passed away at the age at 14 1/2 years. He lived a good and happy life, always hiking with me in the backwoods. He accompanied me on many occasions so I didn’t dwell in the wilderness alone. Here he is resting on Spring Canyon Trail in Zion National Park.
