Description

I have yet to stop and get closer to this tree to verify the species but it is behind a fence and on the Cahuilla Indian Reservation. It is really majestic at any time of the year but quite colorful right now.

Addendum after walking to the tree: It is in the genus of Populus and I will add a closer observation.
