Cottonwood Trees In Buena Vista

Mt. Princeton

Cottonwoods are a very interesting tree in Buena Vista, and in fact, there are so many of them that this town was originally named "Cottonwood." They typically grow close to creeks and rivers and in the summer, they give off a cotton-like bloom that upon first glance looks like large snowflakes. In the autumn, cottonwoods display their color show usually much later than aspens and give off bright yellows and oranges. So that's my spiel about cottonwoods, which you can see in the photo above. ;)

I have been busy as always. Yesterday I visited the ghost towns of Vicksburg and Winfield, putzed around Cottonwood Pass on Friday, and I created two pictorials today about the old Midland tunnels and a river rafting expedition on the Arkansas River. Fun!

Everyone have a great day! -Steve (July 23, 2006)
