A Walk on the West Side

The larch are turning

Lime green, yellow, golden then deep orange.  The fine needles of the larch change colour each fall before carpeting the forest floor as they fall to the ground.

Autumn is my favourite time of year in the Kootenays and this dramatic show is the main reason.

My daughters and I set out to the west side of River's Crossing this afternoon to see how their larch were progressing, and to take some photos for the annual Kimberley Larch Festival.

Along with the ever present Shadow Mountain cart paths, the west side features a bark covered trail along the river.  A tract of land has also been set aside for a future City of Cranbrook public park.

For all of you who aren't around to enjoy the show, here's a taste of autumn in the Rockies.

- Many thanks to Sarah for taking photos for me, and to Erin for patiently modelling.  We found Erin's raspberry beret at Arrow and Axe in Kimberley.
