I'm very bummed (aspen decline)

I had a fellow USFS employee contact me because she's studying the decline in aspen in the Rocky Mountains. She came across my photo of Aspen Alley on the Medicine Bow National Forest in WY that I took back in 2001 and wanted to use it in her report.

This is her photo of what it looks like now

I've read a bit about aspen decline but I asked to see her report when she's done with it and I'll share it all with y'all.

Wow. The trees certainly don't look as healthy. The ones in the bottom still have their green leaves, which means the picture was taken when it wasn't fall, but there are so fewer leaves.

Her photo was taken in July 2007 - in July at this elevation in Wyoming the aspens should be fully leafed out whereas in my photo taken in September 2001 the trees look quite full despite the fact that there were already fallen leaves on the ground... so something is definitely up...

I'd say so Have they been having drought conditions there?
