Subalpine Larch, North Cascades Washington

This image was made last week as part of my fall trip to the North Cascades in Washington State. The tree in this image is Subalpine Larch (Larix lyallii), a unique type of conifer that lives in isolated spots in the North Cascades and southern British Columbia. For around two weeks starting at the end of september the soft needles on these trees turn golden and fall off. To see them glowing against a brilliant blue sky can be a magical experience!
