Cottonwood trees in peak fall color, Little Wild Horse Canyon, Utah, USA

This beautiful nature-themed fine art landscape photographic print features large old cottonwood trees with autumn leaves in brilliant orange fall color. 

Like many places in Utah, the desert terrain of the southwest contains the Fremont Cottonwood tree with its carved deep and jagged wood trunks (Populus Fremontii).

Beauty in desert landscapes

The Fremont cottonwood is the largest deciduous tree in Utah. The tree trunk reaches 48 inches in diameter at the base. Its wide-spreading limbs near the ground result in an extensive crown reaching 70 feet. Cottonwoods have been known to live for more than 130 years.

These canyons cut through cottonwood trees' water-wanting bark seams in arid climates. This flood-cycle tree resides along a wash near the entrance to Little Wild Horse Canyon. This cottonwood was a significant being, radiating life into the dry air.  

Early explorers in the southwest used the cottonwood trees as a sign of water nearby. Cottonwood trees can survive with little rain, but their roots must reach deep and find some groundwater, making the cottonwood a sign of a natural water system.
