It's time to start planning those leaf-peeping adventures because it appears fall foliage is arriving a bit early and we're just weeks away from the bare-tree greyness of the long winter season. At the top of our fall hikes list is Quebec's Mont-Orford.

The Estrie mountain, situated in a Quebec national park of the same name, features eight hiking trails, each offering an immersive adventure in the brilliant, fiery colours of the fall foliage.

Even though the mighty cold has finally settled in, it doesn't mean we Montrealers need to stay cooped up in our apartments! Many of my favourite activities can be done all year round, such as day tripping outside of the city to take in some nature feels in the beautiful surrounding areas. And what better way to feel uplifted during these short winter days than to go skiing?!

If there's one thing that can turn your winter blues aroundit's hitting the slopes. And if you're already a ski enthusiast, you probably already have your go-to ski mountain. But if you're looking for a new adventure, there are many spots nearby you that you simply must try.

Fall is finally here, and I don't know about all of you but I'm so relieved! I love fall and everything about it. The big chunky sweaters, circle scarves, black boots and cozy tea, there's absolutely nothing wrong with this season whatsoever.

I think the very best part of this season is the changing colours of the leaves. Once the air cools down from humid, hot temperatures to cool, crisp ones the leaves also change from bright, lively green to gorgeous red, orange, and yellows. These colours are a symbol of the leaves dying and falling off for the winter months, but even though it's a symbol of the cold months to come it's still incredibly beautiful.
