This Canadian getaway starts for me in the rain... Yes! It's fall. But it doesn't matter. In the Laurentians, the colors of the trees explode, even under a gray sky.
Autumn in the Laurentians
I didn't come across the famous "Indian week", which is supposed to offer a final respite of sunny mildness before winter... A little more than an hour from Montreal, in the park at Mont Tremblant...you get a lot of peepers. Even under an umbrella !
By car (automatic) to Mont-Tremblant!
In Montreal itself, the maples of the long avenue where the friends who shelter me do not have these glowing colors yet. You have to get out of the city to take the full measure of Quebec's fall.
