Velvet moments: travel photo of the week – fall colours in the Rockies


On my recent trip to Canada, I traversed the Canadian Rockies from Jasper to Vancouver aboard the luxurious Rocky Mountaineer train. The mountain scenery was spectacular but the stunning fall colours made the experience simply unforgettable! The photo below was taken as we passed the cloud-covered peak of Mount Robson, at 3,954m, the highest mountain in the Canadian Rockies.

    Being from Canada, and living in Vancouver for years, we can certainly attest to the beauty there and when the fall colours really come out with shades of orange and pinks, it is spectacular.

    We would purposefully go to some of the areas where the tress are humongous and full of foliage and just walk. Kicking up fallen leaves, it’s like walking through a tunnel as on either side of the street the trees are so tall and so full, they touch in the middle and form an encasement of prettiness all around you. We love it…

    one of our favourite things to do in the fall in Vancouver.

    I’m sure the scenery would be totally different. The colours were just about changing when I was there a few weeks ago. The train ride was…yup, awesome! 🙂

    Oh I miss Jasper! That train ride is awesome though aye. We did it at the start of winter with fresh snow on the ground.
