Alaska Yellow Cedar - Callitropsis nootkatensis
A common tree in open forests and on sunny slopes, between 3000 and 7000 feet, but best-developed below 5000 feet. Large, old trees may be easily found at Narada Falls, but a truly huge specimen grows along Ipsut Creek, north of the Pass. Better-known under its former name, Chamaecyparis. Photographed (left and center) at the White River campground on September 1, 2013, and (right) on the Crystal Peak Trail on July 28, 2016.
