When autumn arrives in the Enchantments, the basin becomes a sea of yellow as the Alpine Larch trees prepare to shed their needles. This is a spectacular scene like no other. Although I don't normally include non-climbs on my webpage trip reports, these flaming yellow larch trees deserve a page just as much as any climb.
The following page is chock full of photos of a golden yellow theme. (Most of the photos on this page were taken during 3 separate trips into the Enchantments in Oct 2008 and 2009; in addition, in 2011 I added some more larch tree photos from a couple of October dayhikes into the Rainy Pass area to the north of the Enchantments). On this page there are also some cool facts about the larch tree, and a little general information about the Enchantments here and there. Hope you like the color yellow.
