Natural landscapes: the ocean of autumn yellow
BANFF NATIONAL PARK, ALBERTA
This place – a nine-kilometre return hike from the parking lot – is justifiably one of the most popular autumn hikes in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Once you arrive (a challenging 500-metre climb with many switchbacks), you’re greated by thousands of flourescent yellow/orange larches. Normally green, they change colour and then drop their needles each fall.
I liked this perspective, with the distant mountainside in the background, then found a giant boulder to climb on and gain additional height.
