Autumn colors

The last of our trees to turn color are the Black Cottonwoods and the Western Larch. I hope they hold their color for another week so I can get a few more photos before all of the color here is white.

Celebration of the Western Larch (Larix Occidentalis)

One of the grand trees of the Northwest, the Western Larch, is now showing its fall colors. I cannot help but celebrate.

Here are some photos taken in the past few days. The first eight were taken at Weeksville Creek just off the Clark Fork of the Columbia (elevation about 2450 feet) on November second, the next four at Mc Cully Ridge in the Fishtrap Creek drainage (elevation about 3300 feet) on October 31, and the last six today as I hiked up the Baldy Mountain trail (elevation, 6000 to 6500 feet). It was a little cold and snowy on the trail.

This photo was taken from about a mile down Forest Service road 887 from Weeksville Divide above Todd Creek. Mount Baldy in the background is about ten miles to the northeast (line of sight).
