Hello Folks,
Just to add a few cents to this thread; I agree wholeheartedly with Andre's
descriptions of the Festival of Colour!
I live 25 miles south of the Quebec border and our Gatineau Park is
spectacular with respect to Fall Colours.
I was in the Eastern townships last weekend for a family wedding near
Victoriaville. Unlike most of Canada, this area is sectioned off into land
parcels which remind me of the U.K. In the summer, the rolling hills of this
area are like a patchwork quilt and each field has it's own crop; all
differing from one another. It is truly a glorious summer sight as well as a
spectacular scenic in the fall.
Vive le Canada avec Quebec!
