Larches

Larch Time in Pocaterra Cirque

Highwood Pass is a popular venue for larch viewing. While there are a few larches at the pass for the driving tourist, the nearby cirques — Pocaterra and Arethusa — contain one of the highest concentrations of larches in Kananaskis Country. We headed out to photograph the larches in Pocaterra Cirque and climb Pocaterra Ridge.
