The main difference beteen the Rocky Mountain Juniper and the Utah Juniper is that the Utah has tanish seed cones, while the Rocky Mountains have buish or blue-blackish seed cones . Also, the Rocky Mountain Juniper can grow to be taller and is found more commonly. Otherwise, they do look pretty much the same when it comes to leaf shape, and I'm not sure about any of the others.

So, just kind of curious, which field guide is the best that you guys have found? We only have audubon, but I'm thinking of ordering the Sibley. Does anyone recommend this?

:) 8th at nationals though I kinda hoped for a harder test. They were all texas trees and we could move when we wanted so we ended up finishing the test in 28 minutes.

Yep, we had 7 questions per station and it was a huge time crunch. I wonder why they thought it was necessary to make different tests for B and C division.
