Fishlake National Forest, Utah

One of the largest single organisms anywhere is the Pando clone, a gigantic grove of linked aspen trees that all grew from the same tiny seed and remain connected by a shared root system. There are more than 40,000 trees, and when the wind blows through them, it makes an unforgettably loud whisper. Photographs by Karine Laval. Field recordings by Jeff Rice.
