There’s nothing better than the crisp days of Fall in BC. Something about the smell in the air and the leaves on the ground brings new life to the city.

Fall in BC is unlike any other place in the world because our city has the best of all worlds. We have the mountains, the ocean and lush forests to go exploring in. Even when it’s Fall, the weather is usually still mild enough to do a lot of popular hikes and spend time outdoors.

These are just some of the spots in BC with amazing Fall landscapes that prove this province is the best place to be to soak up the season.

Unlike other Canadian provinces (cough, Calgary, cough) our Fall doesn’t include snow. Kits Beach is the perfect place to spend a sunny Fall day.

Been a bit quite this week, because yesterday we had the @fortlangleycranberryfestival … and even though this was my fifth year coordinating the festival, I always stress the week before. BUT we had great weather, and a great turnout – upwards of 60,000 people 🙌🏻 and we sold ALL 12,500 pounds of fresh cranberries that were donated by @oceansprayinc : #fortlangley #fortlangleycranberryfestival #cranberryfestival #cranberries #thanksgiving #canadiangrown #canadianthanksgiving #festival #eventplanner #coordinator #everydaylife #reallife #candidchildhood #simplychildren #shesahandfull #inbeautyandchaos #lifewithkids #thelittlethings #letthembelittle #stopgrowing #childhoodunplugged #thatsdarling #toddlerlife #dadlife #momlife #motherhoodrising #girlmom #yvrmom #vancouvermom

Kootenay National Park

We were so happy to finally feel the sun on our skin on the windy chilly morning two nights ago. 45 kilometers of snowy, up and down trail, with some of the most stunning views we have ever seen, led us to this blue gem surrounded by dramatic peaks and golden larches. This adventure will be the one to remember long time after we've returned to the warmth of our cars/homes. Have a magic weekend out there and stay warm! // Shot on Canon 6D with 16-35mm 2.8 III, ISO 100, 18mm, f/5,0, 6s, polarizing + ND filters to smooth out the waves and reduce reflections to get the blue water colour . . . . . . . #imagesofcanada #explorecanada #canada #alpinebabes #explorerbabes #awesomeglobe #femmetravel #dnescestujem #womenwhoexplore #greatnorthcollective #earthpix #earthfocus #mntchicks #roamtheplanet #agameoftones #mntchicks #uniladadventure #wildernessculture #beautifuldestinations #canonczsk #ourplanetdaily #stayandwander #Kananaskis #exploretocreate #nakedplanet #discoverearth #earthofficial #travelalberta #tentree #passionpassport #sonyalphafemale
