Fall on Vancouver Island is one of the most beautiful times of year. These OctoberGrams are a collection of some of my most popular Instagram posts from October 2014. All photos were shot and edited with an iPhone 5s.

An amazing walk in the woods along the Cowichan River near Skutz Falls. #cowichan #explorebc #leaves #fall #ILiveHere A photo posted by Mariska Richters (@mariskar) on
Found this playful seal snacking on a school of fish just off the Ogden Point breakwater in Victoria today. It was almost as though he knew we were watching him. I love nature! A photo posted by Mariska Richters (@mariskar) on

I’ve been completely enamored by autumn this year. The combination of our incredible endless summer weather and the colors that nature presents us with has me stopping to snap photos everywhere I go. This is the gravel road on the way to Cowichan River Provincial Park. It’s quickly becoming one of my favorite places to get out into the middle of nowhere to enjoy the quiet beauty of nature without cell service and completely unplugged from the world.

I’ve driven past Goldstream Park more times than I can count but I’ve never actually followed the road that goes through it. Today I turned off the highway to see where it leads and it was a super cute one-lane road through the park and into a residential area on the other side that I never knew existed. I always love discovering new places just by taking a simple turn off the beaten path. #autumn #goldstreampark #countryroad #road #bcparks #explorebc #forest
