Day 4: The fall colours near Québec City, QC

The changing of the leaves each fall is due not so much to the cooler temperatures as to the decreased light resulting from shorter days. In the maple tree, the accumulation of sugar in the sap is what accounts for the brilliant red of the leaves, whose hue varies depending on the soil composition. The fall colours are at their best in Mont Saint-Anne and in nearby Parc National de la Jacques Cartier, both within easy drive distance from Québec City. Keep your cameras at the ready as this will be a day of stunning images.
