Wild Northerner Magazine Fall 2017 - Page 9


The fall season brings about a memorable time of the year for avid outdoorspeople with the changing of the leaves. Green leaves give way to vibrant patches of red, orange and yellow as the colder air grips the region and sets it up for winter.

This leaves the wilderness in a state of pure beauty and can captivate the imagination. One of the best ways to stay on top of the changing colours and what places in northern Ontario are experiencing changes faster than others or slower, is by checking out the Ontario Parks Fall Colour Report.

This system keeps an up-to-date progress report on leaves throughout Autumn.

It can be accessed through the Ontario Parks website at this link: https://www.ontarioparks.com/fallcolour

The page features an interactive map with parks that report about changes in colours of leaves. There is also a chart with various degrees of coloured leaf icons to give visitors a guide on what state each section is currently experiencing.

The page features open parks with many including information about trails and what facilities are still operational during the season.

This page gives hikers, outdoorspeople and nature lovers a key reference for getting out at the optimum time and day to get stunning photographs as well as soaking up amazing scenery in the North.
