Larch Heaven
This spot, known as Sprite Lake is special in the summertime but with the golden larches it is even more so. Picture taken on Oct 13, 2007 by Matt Burton. Picture used with his permission. Read more about the Larch tree HERE.

Thank you, that is a great place, especially at that time of the year.

I wish I could take credit for this pic but all credit goes to Matt who indeed had the right conditions and captured the essence so well.
Thank you for your comments and I will forward them onto the photographer (who isn't a member of SP)

Thank you. I wish I could take credit for it but the fellow who took it was kind enough to let me share it on summitpost. I never imagined it would be so well received.

Very nice photo -- the lakes and mountains in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness were named in large part by Bill and Peg Stark, who also helped achieve the wilderness area status. Bill and Peg were good friends during our years in Leavenworth-- they made annual trips up to these lakes well into their 70s. Great people-- mentors to many young hikers, climbers, skiers, and wilderness lovers.

I met the Starks for the first time on the Snow Creek Trail. They gave me one of their famous maps that had the names of the places they had named. I then met them again in Leavenworth when they were either in their late 80's or early 90's. They were indeed outstanding people and I made a mention of them in the Enchantment page. Thanks for your comments and sharing your views of them. Leavenworth will always be one of my favorite towns and the Starks will always be fondly remembered.

Thanks for the link-- read the piece. My wife and I created/owned/operated the Edel Haus in Leavenworth -- 82-87 (burned a couple of years ago--now condos-- 320 9th st overlooking riverfront park). I guided cross country ski trips up to Bill & Peg's high camp during winters, with many great experiences up there and in town-- their grand daughter worked for us one summer. If you ever get a chance-- see the Turner network's state by state series on Washington (circa 1985)-- an amazing publisher -- ex Nun from central America, stayed with us scouting-- were pointed to us but I recommended Bill & Peg for profiles-- they did a nice piece-- deserve far more credit than they got -- also a good piece on Lou Whitaker @ RMI. .02-- MM

I saw the Stark's slide shows and I doubt any photos were better than this one-- the clarity is outstanding.

It is certainly a small world. My wife and I stayed at the Edel Haus back in the 80's as well as a couple of the other places in Leavenworth. Leavenworth was our escape from the heat of the tri cities and the Enchantments was my escape from an escape. We also camped at 8 mile campground a lot. However the Edel Haus was very unique and is missed.

Hi folks -- found some old hiking photos from 1980s with Bill and Peg Stark so posted a small album -- not the enchantments, but rather hiking up to their high camp which I believe was just inside the Alpine Lakes Wilderness -- we accessed off of HWY 2 -- in winter with snow cat several miles.
