Ailsa’s weekly travel theme focuses on foliage this week. As Albertans only have about 5 months of foliage per year (May through September) if we’re lucky, we enjoy it while we can. I love fall foliage (just keep hitting next to see plenty of examples), but lush greens fresh after a rain, or frost tipped leaves are just as fascinating as sweeping panoramas of glowing golds.

These Sweetgum leaves near Baton Rouge, Louisiana glow in the afternoon sun.
A light frosting highlights these leaves and morning sun makes everything sparkle.
