A change of seasons

Just a little over two weeks ago when I visited the Corona Lake area, the trees were yellow and gold and the ground was brown. When I returned yesterday the ground was golden and the trees were brown, and a little white had entered the landscape.

These photos were taken about a week ago along Thompson River in northwest Montana and are the last of the best of this season’s fall colors. It has rained ever since, the larch have lost most of their golden needles and the cottonwoods have shed a large part of their leaves. The rain is now providing a good drink for the trees before the ground freezes and they enter the desert-like conditions (from their perspective) of winter.

Rainy day

Sometimes it’s good to just burrow back into the brush and the rocks, under the trees, and enjoy the rain.

The Larch at Weeksville Divide

Today I visited a large display of Western Larch that grows just to the north of the Weeksville Creek Divide at the headwaters of Todd Creek. The tall mountain in the background is the site of the photos in the two previous posts.
