Fall Photos In Canada Remind You Why It's The Greatest Season

Summer is drawing to a close, as Alberta is all too aware, but that's actually great news for people who love gorgeous views. And who doesn't love a gorgeous view?

Fall, which starts on at 10:30 p.m. on September 22, 2014, according to the Old Farmer's Almanac, is the time of year when Canada is at its most brilliant, with trees showing off their colours like peacocks before settling into winter.

The stunning vistas across the country make for particularly incredible backdrops for the reds, oranges and yellows of the season, whether they're set against mountains, rivers or simply wooded trails.

Take a look at these incredible shots of Canada in the fall — and if you have one of your own to add, email us at
