Thanks Marc! It's always a great pleasure to anticipate the coming season ... even when it stubbornly refuses to come, as it happens with winter season 2008-2009!

That's what I wanted: tarn and trees (no trees on the opposite slope though:))

The opposite slope faces North, Yatsek. Of course it would be too cold for the trees. The summit is over 4,000 m high anyway, you'd need to move it to the tropics to have any trees there :)

OK where've the bushes or at least grasses gone? Is it easier for trees to take roots in this rock? Hard quarzite maybe?

the trees colonize quartzites perfectly well at lower altitudes. No, it is the climate, too long winter, too frozen soils for the trees to thrive.

Misunderstood. I was asking if it's possible that the rock makes it easier for trees and pretty hard for smaller plants with shorter roots to grow.
