It’s a juicy landscape in Quebec right now and I kept thinking of fruit, not leaves, when I looked around: like blood oranges dripping scarlet, and limes and grapefruit. And lemons, and well, you get the picture. No, wait! I got the pictures – what a photo op – and here are some of my favs:
This best-ever-press-trip (thanks Tourism Quebec!) took place in the Quebec region of Lanaudiere and la Mauricie, better known to you and me as that place between Montreal and Quebec City. The photo above is of a nordic spa called Natur’Eau.
This is Wolf River at a stellar property called Auberge la Baluchon. Wolf River, or Rivière-du-Loup, is the Paris Hilton of landscape. It always begs to be photo’d. (Sorry, Paris – maybe I’m wrong.)
So here it is again, Wolf River. Even in the fog it’s stunning.
But it wasn’t all leaf peeping in Quebec. A girl’s gotta rest:
That’s the little nordic spa at Baluchon.
And a gal’s gotta play …
The kayaking was at a woodsy lodge called Lac Taureau, located – wait for it – on scenic Lac Taureau.
And then she has to rest some more. This time at another Nordic Spa called Kinipi (above) in Trois-Rivieres. I also rested at La Source, yet another nordic spa (are we beginning to suspect Quebec was settled by Vikings, not the French?), but I don’t want to dwell on how rested I am. We’re here to talk about leaves.
With colours like this it’s truly an amazing time of year to travel, so I suggest you get to Lanaudiere and la Mauricie in a hurry …
Because it won’t last for long.
