A fall visit to North Cascades National Park in Washington is a great chance to see the larches in their gorgeous fall colors. Photographer Meghan Young captured this beautiful scene. “We went on an overnight hike and woke to a fresh dusting of snow, the perfect complement to the fiery orange of the trees. We watched the clouds dance over the distant hills while taking in the views, dumbstruck by the beauty of the moment!” Photo courtesy of Meghan Young.
