Jasper, Tulips, Flowers, and a Butterfly – Photos of the Week, August 1st to 7th

August 11, 2015 — Leave a comment

I post new photos to my social media every day but they rarely appear on my website. I intend to change that with a new “photos of the week” feature. I don’t believe in keeping “in season” but post whatever inspires me on that particular day. I hope you enjoy and please share this post if you do 🙂

A rainbow of colour…
Tulips of the Valley Festival, near Agassiz, Canada, this past Spring

A little brightness…
Although a few of the tulips in this garden were already deadheaded, I still enjoyed this scene from Roozengaarde Display Garden, part of the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival, this past Spring.

I thought my favourite cherry blossom street in East Vancouver looked beautiful in the early morning sun.

Although the Paintbrush had a bite taken out of a leaf, I still enjoyed this natural scene from a meadow along the Heather Trail in Manning Provincial Park, east of Hope, Canada.

A Samsung S5 photo from my very recent trip to Jasper National Park. This was after a short walk from a Highway 16 pullout near the turnoff to Maligne Lake and Jasper Park Lodge. I thought the Athabasca River, mountains, and sky were beautiful.

I hope you enjoyed this post. I’ll do my best with trying to keep up with these weekly posts while writing new ones from my Camino del Norte and other travels. Take care and all the best 🙂

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.
