“No traveler, whether a tree lover or not, will ever forget his first walk in a sugar-pine forest. The majestic crowns approaching one another make a glorious canopy, through the feathery arches of which the sunbeams pour, silvering the needles and gilding the stately columns and the ground into a scene of enchantment.” ~John Muir

  1. Autumn is glorious. I enjoyed your snow photos earlier this week. It is way to warm here, still around 50F. I’m going to visit my little sister further north next month, hoping to see some snow then. Have a wonderful week!

    1. Thank you, Diana! I had never seen that Muir quote but it worked perfectly. Major winter storm coming our way this weekend. Funny how the news station I watch reminds us how to drive in winter conditions–good idea really. Got my winter clothes and boots at the ready!

      1. It appears they are different species but the same Genus.

        Tamarack (Larix laricina) is also commonly called eastern larch. Western larch (Larix occidentalis) also called tamarack. Although larch and tamarack are different species, they are in the same genus and can be used interchangeably.

  2. I learned just yesterday that I had a larch in my front yard. I was wondering if there was something wrong with it, but my neighbor informed me that it’s normal for it to coat the ground with it’s golden needles. I’m enjoying learning what falls does around here!
