The yellow leaves on this tree stand out in stark contrast to the deep blue sky behind, but it is clear that autumn is coming and the season is changing. Whenever the leaves start to turn vibrant reds, yellows and oranges, then they are preparing to fall from the trees in preparation for winter. Despite the cold weather approaching the changing leaves are a beautiful sight and many people like to visit forested regions just to photograph the beautiful colors of fall.
Algonquin Provincial Park is the oldest provincial park in the whole of Canada and has been designated a park since 1893. Some of the trees and plants found in the park date back to that time as the land has been undisturbed since its designation. Each year the trees have been growing and losing their leaves as winter sets in, then growing them again in the warm spring weather.
Fall is considered one of the best times to visit Algonquin Provincial Park and these bright yellow leaves on this tree here is one of the biggest. Thousands of people visit the park in this season to see the changing leaves, with the best time being from mid-September to mid-October to see the Sugar and Red Maples. The aspens, Tamaracks, and Red Oaks hit their peak a few weeks after that.
