PS I think I have the order of the racing trees reversed. My mental librarian just produced a picture of the background trees racing along with the bus.

The colour on this site doesn't do justice to the original, which I saw recently in Will Cummer's place in Gibsons. The print superbly brings back my bus rides into UBC along Chancellor Boulevard around 1970. I've always thought of them as silver birches, but Will says they're aspens. The only thing missing from your picture is the foreground trees racing along with the bus, or the background trees scurrying in the opposite direction. Lee Mann in Sedro Woolley has the same subject in a wider format. It attracted me to his gallery, but I came away with two of golden aspens in the fall, one with so much gold that it strongly reminded me of Gustav Klimt's gold-leafed demoiselles. After I've gotten through this period of large mastercard bills (an annual event, ending, I hope, with the house taxes) I intend to replace another print (having no wall space left) with this. It may have to be ordered, if Will's print (#1, I believe) is on someone else's wall by then.
