These golden leaves hang on the trees along the Whiskey Rapids Trail during a beautiful autumn day in Algonquin Provincial Park, Ontario, Canada. This trail has a reputation for its varied natural surroundings and can be walked at any time of the year, but autumn is one of the best times because the leaves are changing and falling from the trees, and the bright colours of the foliage are truly a treat for the eyes.
The Whiskey Rapids Trail follows the Oxtongue River all the way to the Whiskey Rapids. You can buy a brochure that will teach you all about the species of plants, trees, animals and insects, or you can just take a walk and let your eyes do the learning for you and take in all the beautiful natural surroundings. This park is particularly interesting also because it contains both northern coniferous forests and southern deciduous forests and you can see species of both in one area. These trees produce beautiful golden leaves in the fall that eventually carpet the forest floor.
Leaves change colour and drop to the forest floor in preparation for winter and they change their colour when there is less sun. Not all trees lose their leaves however and you can see examples of both along the Whiskey Rapids Trail as it contains so many different species of trees. For some, autumn is the best time to explore Algonquin Provincial Park and if you do you can see the bright leaves like the ones seen in this photo.
