Third Report - Autumn Colours
Kouchibouguac national park has reached approximately 15% of its autumn colours. The past week gave us cool fall temperatures with two good frosts. Several maples along Route 117 are full of colour; yellows, oranges and reds are visible more and more along the pedestrian paths, bicycle paths, and other access roads. The Claire-Fountain path, forming a loop of approximately 3 km offers several panoramic sights along the rivers Rankin Brook and Black River. One is almost assured to see various birds and wildlife.
Along Route 134 from Dalhousie to Campbellton, and Route 17 to Robinsonville as well as
down the Gaspe coast as far as Carleton there has not been a big change. The colours are starting to develop but are still very muted and only rare trees in full conversion.
From St. Martins to the Saint John Airport on Hwy 111 west, the trees are telling us it is autumn. Rust, red and yellow are splashed on the hill sides of the Fundy Trail Parkway, through to Sussex on Hwy 111 east.
