Jasper, Queen Elizabeth Park, and More, Photos of the Week, October 10th to 16th

October 21, 2015 — 2 Comments

Jasper National Park, Alberta and Queen Elizabeth Park in Vancouver are two of my favourite places to visit. I am a mere 15 minute drive to the latter and sadly, a nine hour drive to Jasper. Still, no matter how close or far I’m away, I always cherish my time spent in those beautiful places. Now, please join me on my photos of the week posted to social media.


I love visiting Athabasca Falls in Jasper National Park, especially on a beautiful Summer’s day.

About Randall St. Germain

Randall St. Germain, author of Camino de Santiago In 20 Days, is a middle-aged Canadian Boy who is passionate about nature, photography, hiking, music, and self-improvement. After the death of his mother, he chose to walk the famous pilgrimage, the Camino de Santiago, across the north of Spain, despite knowing little about it. He certainly didn’t plan to write a book until the latter days of his Camino. Similar to walking the Camino, writing and publishing a book was a learning experience. It was also very rewarding, and part of his ongoing journey. Please join him as he takes you along on his journey in Camino de Santiago In 20 Days, and on his blog Camino My Way.
