Happy International Day of Forests! This is the Pando Aspen in Fishlake National Forest. It spans more than 100 acres and is the largest and oldest known Aspen clone. It weighs more than 14million pounds and has been aged more than 80,000 years (some experts even argue that it is closer to 1 million years old). Another fun fact is that this entire network of trees is one massive interconnected organism! How poetic is that?!? It was proposed to be the world’s most massive organism in 1992 and in 2006, USPS published a stamp of these Aspens calling it one of the forty “Wonders of America”. Do you have a favorite forest to share?
Observar as estrelas do Atacama é como estar no planetário, mas a céu aberto 😻 PS. Somente câmera profissional consegue capturar o momento; esse clique maravilhoso foi tirado pela @fersantoss com uma Nikon d610 + configurações específicas de abertura, velocidade e tempo de exposição
