This gallery shows images related to the Aceraceae family, commonly known as maple. The family includes shrubs and trees noted for distinctive sharp toothed leaves.
Apparently maples are often included in the Sapindaceae (Soapwood) family.
In the Wasatch Mountains, the maple trees are prone to turn a bright red in fall. The first set of pictures in this gallery was part of an experiment to see how the leaves fared against different backtground.
The three leaves came from Neffs Canyon.
