Autumn Maples, near Arnprior, Ontario
Digital Photo by Richard McGuire
A red maple leaf is the emblem of Canada, and few places get as brilliant red leaves as the Ottawa Valley. The oranges, golds and other colors look like nature went wild with a paintbrush.
The leaves start to turn around the end of August, building up through September to a spectacular climax early in October. Exact timing depends on the arrival of frost, and temperature changes, and some years are better than others.
