Larch Beauty

When we first moved up here full-time and I saw the pine-like larches turning yellow and their needles falling off, I thought they were dieing. Since then I have learned not all of the pine tree keep their needles all year long.

The Larches are some of the last splashes of yellow we see across the mountain before the gray sets in. Then the evergreen pines hold a solitary pose over the grays and white snows of winter. On a day the sun is shining the yellows are more vibrant then today's overcast view. Looking at this million dollar view everyday reminds me that living in a place where financial rewards and business opportunity is limited is worth it when it feeds the heart.
