Larix occidentalis

This is a picture taken several years ago at the top of Thompson pass, I am standing In Montana and looking at Idaho, Any one who lives in the north knows this is a fall picture because of the yellowing of the Western Larch (Larix occidentalis a deciduous coniferous tree) all the old loggers call it tamarack. Its a time of year when whole hill sides light up and glow
it not quite like a oak or maple leaf turn but it is cool in it's own right
