I happened upon this small, lonely forest in miniature, high above the tree-line, in the heart of Alaska's Chugach Mountains. These particular trees were of a type which I haven't noticed much around here. We have lots of black spruce, and then hemlock higher up. But this was neither of those ubiquitous types. The bark was smooth and light tan, while the trunks were very straight and uniform thickness. Nothing like it nearby, that I have seen.
