Arboreal Rainbows

It's that time of year again. I managed to get up to Gatineau Park twice so far this fall -- the past two weekends. I'm always wondering when to go to get the maximum foliage colouration effect, and I recently discovered a way to find out. The Weather Network website tracks the progress of the leaves changing colour at a number of locations. Quite a handy site.

While I'm on the subject, a new Gatineau Park master plan is apparently in the works:

Public discussions of the Gatineau Park master plan are scheduled in French at the Canadian Museum of Civilization from 5:30 to 9 p.m. on Oct. 27 and in English at the Canadian Museum of Nature from 5:30 to 9 p.m. on Oct. 28.

The public has until Nov. 30 to comment on the proposed master plan. A summary of the plan and maps illustrating how the NCC hopes to develop the park are available on its website, www.canadascapital.gc.ca.

You can read the full Ottawa Citizen article for more details.

Note: Continue reading for more photos.

Until next year ...
