Aspen Infiltration.  This image is from the site of an abandoned mine on Ski Mountain, above Conifer, Colorado.  The small mining operation left behind some ancient apparatus, including an internal combustion engine with large pulleys plus an air compressor, all nicely jumbled and rusted.  But given enough time, Nature always reclaims what humans have commandeered.  This young aspen is doing its part.<br />
