I love this little family of larches, complete with babies, little kiddos, adults and maybe some grandparents. These are the fall colors in The Enchantment Lakes Wilderness in Central Washington, after a hike to about 7000 feet up into the alpine, and a couple of nights camping.
Unfortunately the light wasn't good for me, lots of clouds, and rain even. I tried to cut through some of it with filters and had time for a long exposure here while my buddy Neal rested by the lake like Tom Sawyer with some straw in his mouth. We were the only people around as far as I could see.
This family of larches at the Enchantments is getting ready to turn in for the winter. I was there just a little past peak after their needles turned gold and started dropping to the ground.
7000' up in the alpine with no one around but families of golden larches, mountain goats and granite.
