Fall Colours Around The Pink Lake

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

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. Hey Zhu!

    Mark is definitely a blasé traveler :).
    I also love the Autumn; its colours and scent. I know this season represents the end of the joyful Summer and the prelude to slumbered Winter, but I love it just the same. It is just another phase of life (like the one you are experiencing now).

    The three of you are so incredibly cute and Mark est trés trés mignon. You seem happy and I am happy for your happiness.


  2. Ah, first family photo! Looking awesome, all three of you!

    And now you remind me of one thing I miss living in the US Northeast. The fall foliage here is not as impressive as there. Some theories I heard is that it gets colder here faster than there, so the leaves don’t have enough time to be pretty, or something like that.

  3. I just love this place. We went to King Mountain, close to Pink Lake, very recently and it was just beautiful, as usual. I’m sure Mark enjoyed it in his own way 😉

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

  5. 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. 🙂
