Coastal BC Plants: Powell Lake Fall Foliage

Right in front of our cabin, Goat Island has a superb display of maples turning yellow and orange. The swath of glorious colour paints up the hillsides through stream carved gullies and across expose rocky slopes.

Have you ever wondered how this colourful display occurs?

Fall days are noticeably shorter and trees start getting ready for winter. The presence of chlorophyll, and its green color, begins to diminish. This allows the yellow and orange colours to become more dominant. -- Margy


  1. Your fall colour is even lovelier when reflected in the water of the lake, Margy.

  2. I agree with the first comment that the colors are lovelier in the water reflection.

  3. Such pretty colors and reflections.
