smoky gold tamaracks


Look back in Aldo Leopold's "A Sand County Almanac" to see what "the Professor" said about smoky gold. It's the season of high color for that wonderful deciduous conifer, the tamarack, Larix laricina - the golden tree of autumn bogs and swamps.

Tamaracks are beautiful, tough customers. They are even more beautiful in the fall, as your photo shows.
