True and quite interesting. Beckey makes a brief mention of the "microclimate" larches west of Ross Lake in the Alpine Guide. There are also timberline groves on the Mt. Prophet massif, just east across the valley of Beaver Creek from Luna, which can be seen glinting gold in the autumn from the North Cascades Hwy.

Luna Lake, 3,500 feet below and to the W, has larch trees around it. I've never seen larches anywhere near that far W anywhere else in the N Cascades. The barrier of the Northern Picketts must create a microclimate comparable to the Liberty Bell area there.
