Albert Camus owns an amazing statement about autumn, the philosopher compared this season with the second spring, when each leaf is a flower. Looking at the variety of autumn colors, I want to wrap myself in a warm scarf, take a thermos with ginger tea and go for a walk. Perhaps one of the most picturesque places where the "bloom" of autumn manifests itself in full, - canadian park algonquin (Algonquin Provincial Park). Nature has created a rich palette: red, yellow and brown leaves are set off by dark green needles. All this splendor is framed by the blue of the sky and the blue of the lakes. The park is especially beautiful in the period from mid-September to mid-October, when red maple leaves in bold strokes fall on the green of the fir trees.
Algonquin is one of the oldest and largest American parks. Since 1893, trees have been planted in this area to replenish the American timber supplies needed for large-scale construction. In 1933, a highway was laid to the park for transporting timber, and then the first tourists came here.
Today, the area of the park is 8 thousand square kilometers; visitors are amazed by the endless expanses of wild nature, as well as the abundance of animals. Elk, wolves, black bears and small mammals such as beavers, foxes, chipmunks, squirrels and raccoons can be seen in Algonquin. A huge number of birds nest in the park. The picturesque landscape is perfectly complemented by numerous lakes (there are 2400 of them in total), along which routes for canoeing are laid.
Tourists who come to rest in this park note that Algonquin has well-groomed campgrounds and well-paved hiking trails, which allows you to travel with a backpack on your shoulders. Fans of extreme recreation also come here in winter, as there are excellent ski slopes.
Autumn colors are always harmony, beauty and even if sadness, then light. Natural landscapes often inspire brush masters to create. On our site Kulturologiya.ru we have already written about many "autumn" artists who managed to capture the magic of this time of year. Among them are Belarusian artist Leonid Afremov, Japanese landscape painter Pan Mossi, master of autumn watercolors Roland Palmaerts and many others.
