Photo: Autumn Scene Quebec Jacques Cartier Provincial Park

A beautiful autumn scene unfolds along the banks of the Jacques Cartier River in the Jacques Cartier Provincial Park in the province of Quebec, Canada a popular year round destination for Quebecer's and tourists alike.

The Jacques-Cartier River, in south-central Quebec, is 177 kilometres in length and although it is an extremely scenic river any time, when autumn comes to Quebec the vibrant colours of the foliage of the trees and shrubs increases its beauty.

As most of the river is part of the Jacques-Cartier Provincial Park it is protected by the 670 square kilometre parklands. The source of the river begins in Jacques-Cartier Lake in a wild and wooded section of the Laurentians Mountains and through the Laurentide Wildlife Reserve.

As the Jacques-Cartier River flows mainly southward it meanders through the rim of the Canadian Shield and the villages situated on the river banks. There are half a dozen little settlements Donnaconna, Pont-Rouge, Ste-Catherine, Shannon, Saint-Gabriel-de-Valcartier and Tewkesbury, totalling a population of about 25,000. ... continue below the picture...

... After travelling through the fertile Saint Lawrence lowlands the Jacques-Cartier River empties into the Saint Lawrence River at Donnaconna, about 30 kilometres from Quebec City.

The Jacques-Cartier River in the province of Quebec, Canada is excellent for fishing, canoeing and rafting as well as rock-climbing and hikers, and as it is close to Quebec City the river is an easy and popular destination for both locals and tourists alike.
