Autumn begins, James heads south…

Posted in Posts by James Benedict Brown on 7 October, 2005

The week of hot hot hot (27C) days is coming to an end. I climbed to the top of the Mont-Royal on Wednesday, but didn’t spend too long up there because of the intense heat. In some parts of the province of Québec it’s been the hottest October ever. However, it hasn’t stopped the onset of autumn: the leaves are beginning to turn colour to an astonishing palette of reds, yellows and oranges.

Perhaps a bit like in Belfast, the grid layout of streets in the city centre allows for some beautifil perspectives: long boulevards of skyscrapers framing the autumnal ‘mountain’ in the distance, and some times the illuminated cross that stands high above the city.

And I’m looking forward to seeing more of the same colours tomorrow, as I head south across the border to New York for a few days. The daily Amtrack Adirondack train runs from Montréal to the Big Apple, and pretty much the whole length of New York State in the process, and is named after the mountains it passes through. I’m back in Montréal on Wednesday night, and will tell all soon…
