Fall Colors
Algonquin Park

Fall colors Algonquin Park is a page dedicated to showing why so many people visit this magnificent park in autumn.

The contrasts of dark evergreens, blue skies and waters, with the blazing reds and yellows of maple and birch fall leaves is stunning.

And there's the added bonus of maybe seeing moose with their antlers fully formed or bears foraging for the last few berries before settling down to a long winter's hibernation.

Wolves too can be quite active at this time of year as they prepare for winter.

This stand of red and yellow maples is along the roadside on Highway 60, opposite Robinson Lake which has been a popular spot with artists since the Group of Seven days, as it heads into Algonquin Park.

Lakes sparkle in the autumn sun, reflecting the colors on calmer days -- which adds to the show.

Hwy 60 provides panoramic scenes, such as this one where whole hillsides show their colors, and close-ups, like the images lower down the page.

Side roads off highway 60 outside the park are also good spots to see autumn colours.

For the most part, I'm going to let these Algonquin Park images speak for themselves as this is a photos page.

However, it's worth mentioning that almost all of southern Ontario also has magnificent tree colors at this time of year.

The road climbs, dips and weaves its way through the forest as well as along lake sides. Here's a view from the top of one of many hills with the red maples glowing in the morning sun.

One of the joys of visiting the countryside in the autumn is the almost complete lack of bugs. The stinging, biting bugs have all died off by September/October leaving just clear blue skies, crisp dry air, and thousands of acres of glorious colour.

A close-up of red maple leaves, Canada's national symbol and here's another page of fall colors.

Almost at the other side of Ontario, near Sault Ste Marie, is another famous spot for fall colours -- Agawa Canyon or visit our page of Agawa Fall Photos.

The only way to see Agawa Canyon fall colors is from the Agawa Canyon train tour.

Another magnificent red maple. Not every year produces spectatular colors. Sometimes the temperatures don't fall sharply enough or the difference between night and day temperatures aren't significant enough and sometimes we get a cloudy autumn so there isn't the sun to make the colors glow.

There are no guarantees in the natural world.

Having said that, most years are still amazing so go for it. It will be worth the trip.
