Alberta's larch trees have officially changed colour (PHOTOS)

Sep 23 2019, 9:29 am

It’s time.

Alberta’s gorgeous yellow larch trees are out in full force as the weather cools and the first few days of fall bring a whole new kind of beauty to the hiking trails throughout the province.

There are plenty of places to see the vibrant yellows of the larches, though your window of snowless hikes may be coming to a swift and chilly close sooner than you’d think.

If you don’t manage to dig out those hiking boots and get some kilometres under your feet this September, no worries — the trees looks just as almost as stunning over on Instagram.

Here are a just few of our favourite photos of the natural phenomenon in action:

For your own safety, please make sure you are prepared before heading out on your next adventure. Information on how to prepare for your trip and stay safe while on your hike is available from Albertaparks.ca and AdventureSmart. Parks Canada visitor guidelines are available here. 

Always remember to leave no trace, pack out what you pack in, stick to designated trails, and refrain from feeding wildlife — and please note that irresponsibly-taken selfies (even if they look great for the ‘gram) can be fatal
