The Blue Mountains in Early November

I live in a valley bordered on the west by the Blue Mountains of NE Oregon.  They are truly blue, as is evident in this photo I took from a little viewpoint on the mountain pass.  The yellow trees are Western Larch, commonly known as Tamarack, a conifer that turns yellow and drops its needles the same way deciduous trees behave in the fall.  The haze is most likely the result of burning slash piles in the forest.  I'm joining in with Madge Bloom's Weekly Top Shot.
