Rocky Mountain National Park.

This is me on top of the Rockies.
Camping in Rocky Mountain National Park.
Lastly, the beloved Aspen trees.
We kind of like these trees so much we named our dog after them. Aspen comes from the greek word aspis, which means shield. They were named for their protective and magical powers, and they are a hardy tree, even able to survive forest fires. Aspen trees are easily recognizable by their white bark, and their leaves tremble in the sunlight, which to me is like nature's chandelier. Even though we weren't allowed to take our dog with us, at least we were surrounded most places we went by these beauties.
