Fall Colours Around The Pink Lake


Mark took his first inter­provin­cial trip when Feng and I decided to check out the fall colours in Gatineau Park, in Que­bec. We drove around for half an hour—I’m always impressed by how huge the “park” is!—and made it to Pink Lake, a pop­u­lar scenic look­out around the epony­mous lake (which is not pink).

The fall rhap­sody is gor­geous this year. The leaves actu­ally stayed on the trees longer than usual and turned into lovely yellow-rust tones.

As for Mark, he slept through, snug­gled against me and obliv­i­ous to the beauty around him. Ungrate­ful brat or blasé traveler…?

You can see all the Fall pic­tures on the Ottawa (Fall) set on Flickr.

  1. Beau­ti­ful! I love fall. I’d say Mark is blasé, he doesn’t want to appear TOO excited when he knows he has some incred­i­ble adven­tures ahead of him.

  2. The colours there are sim­ply mag­nif­i­cent dur­ing autumn!!

    I have just dis­cov­ered your blog and love it. :) I am the oppo­site: I am a Cana­dian set­tling into France (and vying for French cit­i­zen­ship). Your emi­gra­tion sto­ries are emphat­i­cally felt. :)
