Has a fine aspect from the north. I am curious about the name Tamarack. As a tree this is Larix( Larch) which grows from Maine to the Yukon and another couple of species which grow from central Oregon up to Southern BC. Just curious how this mtn. recieves its name when Tamarack is not native to the state? Thanks for the fishing info.

You are correct in your belief that there are no Tamarack trees in the vicinity of this peak. Apparently the Lodgepole Pine is quite similar in appearance to the Tamarack, and the two are often confused. There are some nice stands of Lodgepole Pine in the basin on the north side of the peak. Again, it is not an "official" name, but the consensus name given by the locals. Tamarack Lake and Tamarack Creek are names recognized by the USGS, and are on the 7.5' map.

Thanks for looking into the botany. There is a Tamarack Mine too-a bit to the east of Tamarack Creek. I saw it while rumaging through the Topozones.

Good page with great pictures. I always wonder about this huge (in my eyes) summits that don't even have an official name. Here in Europe every minor side summit has its name.
