The Aspen Groves Above Santa Fe

The Sangre De Cristo Mountains of New Mexico have some of the world’s largest Aspen groves. They grew after massive forest fires burned hundreds of thousands or millions of acres at the end of the 19th century. I used to work as a ranger up there – it is incredible country.

They also used to have Bigtooth Maple trees, but the drought of the 1930s killed them off, and you now have to go further south or west to find them.
