Lava Rock Aspen

Lava Rock Aspen

There are thousands of square miles in Oregon, Utah, Nevada, and Idaho where lava rock is spread out in fields of inhospitable landscapes. Over time trees and other vegetation will encroach on the lava rock to reclaim it, to make it viable for plant life. This is one of those areas in Utah where the extremes for life are hard, even for established plants and trees. This photo was one of nearly 500 photos entered in the 2011 University of Oregon Outdoor Photography Competition and was awarded first place in the landscape category.
