October is the known as the month where everything is either terrifying, beautiful, or flavoured with pumpkin spice – but sometimes, October surprises you. It wasn’t a pumpkin or costume photo that garnered us a new record of likes. Instead, it was a simple yet striking shot of the Sandilands forest by Brent McKean that smashed the record. Congratulations Brent! Here’s the best of our #ExploreMB feed in October…

Autumn Makes its Mark by Julie
When the frosty kiss of Autumn in the dark Makes its mark On the flowers, and the misty morning grieves Over fallen leaves; Then my olden garden, where the golden soil Through the toil Of a hundred years is mellow, rich, and deep, Whispers in its sleep. ~ Henry van Dyke.

Halloween in Churchill by Jonathan Gregson Photography
Trick or treating in Churchill, Manitoba isn't quite as easy as in the other parts of Manitoba. "Each year in the Canadian Arctic town of Churchill, 15 armed units patrol the streets while helicopters circle overhead, for one purpose. What looks like a scene from a Hollywood blockbuster is so that the 200 children can enjoy Halloween without fear of being attacked by any of the 1500 polar bears at large around the town. Churchill has one main Halloween rule. No one dresses as a polar bear." This fantastic story and photo is by @jonathangregsonphotography with @marceltheroux for the October 2015 issue of @lonelyplanettraveller. #exploremb #explorecanada
