Alberta's Rocky Mountains deliver a striking combination of red and gold during its short fall in September and October. Home to aspen, birch, and willow, the truly special reason to go is to see the larch trees, as the needles of the deciduous conifer turn golden against the dramatic mountain backdrop. Destinations from which to launch foliage excursions include Banff, Lake Louise, and Canmore. Prefer the manicured to the backwoods? The Canadian Rockies Golf Courses have just announced the best holes for fall foliage viewing. With autumn's drop-off in tourism, accommodations and activity deals are as plentiful as falling leaves.
