Most people don't think of aspens when they think of Nevada. But there are some beautiful ones in Nevada near Lake Tahoe. I like the shape...almost a heart. And the color is pretty cool this time of year.
Here I am in an aspen tree a year ago. My fur was a little fluffier then.
This is me climbing a tree today. It wasn't easy. That tree was quaking. I think they got that term from earth quakes. It felt like I was in an earth quake when the wind hit those branches and the leaves were clattering up a storm. I only fell off once.
A Leaf in the Sand
Near the lake, there were no aspens anywhere, but I found a leaf in the sand. I burried myself down deep with the leaf so neither of us would blow away.
Too bad there wasn't an aspen tree nearby.
You can't believe how windy it was near the water. If there had been an aspen anywhere nearby, I bet you could have heard it quaking all the way in Texas!
My mom gave me this tiny bear over 25 years ago... because I like small things.
