I learned something NEW a few years ago. I learned about Pando, but only recently had the opportunity to take this photo of the “world’s largest living organism”. We took Stebi (our fifth-wheel trailer, which we named Stebi…acronym for “Spending ThE Boys Inheritance) to camp near Fishlake National Forest. This is where the Pando Aspen Clone is located.
This photo may look like a grove of individual trees, but it’s actually a one-tree forest. Underground, everything is connected by a single, vast root system. This one-tree aspen forest is made up of 47,000 trunks, and millions of leaves, connected through one root system! Therefore, it is the world’s largest single living organism. Very cool!

This photo was taken about July 8th. I’d really like to go in the fall and see the changing colors. That’s on the bucket list!
Have a great day! Do or learn something NEW!
