A few weeks ago I headed out to see the larches of the Stuart Range show their fall colors. We hiked from Colchuck Lake to Snow Lake’s parking lot. 20 miles. My knees didn’t enjoy it, but I certainly did. Washington isn’t known like Colorado for fall colors, but the goods just hide in the high alpine. A bit of muscle power is required, but larches put on quite the show.
