Yellow Aspens

This stand of aspens may be found opposite the trail for West Fork in Oak Creek, Sedona on the Thomas Point Trail. Park on the north-bound side of 89-A just before the entrance to the lot at West Fork at the fire road and pick up the trail which parallels the road for a few hundred yards and then heads up the side of the canyon.

An aspen grove in Utah is known as the largest living organism on earth. The largest single living organism is a fungus in Oregon, but the root system of aspens is considered the largest by mass or volume.
