Despite its faults, Ontario is absolutely beautiful in the autumn. The whole province explodes into a multitude of dazzling colours as the trees shed their leaves. Reds, golds, yellows, browns and even some shades of green light up all 1.2 million square km of the province.
Growing up here, I have fond childhood memories of Octobers past, complete with spooky, pumpkin-filled Halloweens and corn-field mazes and multi-coloured forests and haunted hay-wagon rides.
Today I went for a hike in the maple-covered hills that surround Ottawa and revelled in the crisp October air and maple and birch forests. Here are some pictures of a good Ontario autumn!
Below are possibly the best jack-o-lanterns I have EVER seen!
