Over the years I've encountered many alpine larch trees. This one stands out as my favorite. I love this tree! We photographed this tree many times and feel we haven't done it justice. Until now! This photo seems to capture the heart and soul of these old, old trees.
Also, we've noticed that almost all old alpine larches have been hit by lightning. This tree has survived several bolts over the centuries that have split its trunk. The scars have given it character and beauty.
