We’ve hiked this before, but always in winter or early spring. What a magical place in the middle of the spring green up.

First step in brings wide smiles to our faces,
shady path under clear blue sky, a plus.
Most magical of all forest places,
Tamarack Trail has been waiting for us.
Once bare, grey branches now velvety green,
a marvel of nature, this special tree.
Most unusual sight we’ve ever seen,
deciduous, conifer rarity.
Interlocking tops form high lofty arches,
feeling so tiny amid massive scale.
Whether we call them tamaracks or larches,
we thoroughly enjoy hiking this trail.
The trail in leads slowly into the Tamarack Forest.
Tamarack forest beauty.
A marshy fen full of frog chorus and surrounded by feathery Tamaracks
Tiny wildflowers in abundance.
