Rainbow of Fall Color by Blue Lake

The trail to Blue Lake is pretty any time of year, rising up through forests and surrounded by craggy Cascade Mountain peaks. In the fall season, it is even better. Bright yellow golden larch trees line the ridges, showing off their unusual coniferous fall color change. Below them, a rainbow of colors wash down the hillside meadows in reds, oranges, yellows, and greens.
