This beautiful scenic picture with the autumn leaves on both the trees and the ground, was taken along Chemin de la Vallee, a road which runs alongside the Riviere Jacques-Cartier, in Quebec Canada. This is a lovely scenic road and is so peaceful and tranquil, that it has an almost instant calming effect.
A drive along a road like this in autumn is especially magical as the leaves are vivid shades of red, yellow and orange and the combination of the vibrant fall colours above form a magical and scenic forest canopy.
The Parc de la Jacques-Cartier is located just 30 minutes drive from Quebec City and is a park area that allows for a little bit of wilderness close to the city. The park has over 100 km of hiking trails and many of them have a spectacular view at the end. This is the main road in the park which runs alongside the Riviere Jacques-Cartier.
