For me, this Canadian escapade is starting out in the rain... That's right! It's autumn. But no matter. In the Laurentians, the colors of the trees explode, even under gray skies.
Autumn in the Laurentians
I didn't come across the famous "Indian week", supposed to offer a final respite of sunny mildness before winter... A little over an hour from Montreal, in the park of Mont Tremblant...you get a lot of peepers. Even under an umbrella !
By car (automatic) to Mont-Tremblant!
In Montreal itself, the maple trees on the long avenue where my friends live have yet to take on these glowing colors. You have to go out of town to get the full measure of Quebec autumn.
We rented a car for the trip to Mont-Tremblant. An automatic...
I was the driver. A new experience in speed control without a clutch pedal. A little confusing, but you get used to it. All you have to do is brake and accelerate. Still, it feels vaguely like driving a toy car...
But how nice it is to be able to take off down the road as you please, to stop where you like, when you like!
The red house under the flamboyant trees
I knew it would be beautiful, but I was really blown away by the colors of the trees. Autumn in Quebec is truly spectacular!
I would be well spent the beginning of the season in this pretty red house, nestled under the flaming canopy of the forest, overlooking the lake ... (Well, of course, with an internet connection, anyway.)
