Larch trees

Thursday, November 12, 2020

The larches (called tamaracks in some other areas) are the only deciduous conifer. The needles turn yellow and fall of annually. I enjoyed hiking a couple of different trails within Shevlin Park, to enjoy the beautiful trees as they change color.







Here’s a closeup of the needles





The rest of the hike was pretty also.









The tiny figure in the next phot is my friend Hanne. We were impressed by the scale of the rock formation.



There were icicles on the logs in the river.





All in all, these were great hikes!
