A week ago, I opened nap-heavy eyelids to the muffled whooshing of the freeway outside of dad’s truck, a stiff cramp in my neck, and the quiet murmurs of my parents in the front seat. Mom, realizing I was awake, turned in her seat.

In order for this post to not sound like complete, garbled nonsense, there are three things that you’re going to need to know about aspen trees.
