It’s already March and I’m very late with this post. I’ll get straight to it. This is a selection of my photos posted to Social media in December.

 

A favourite drive 🙂
From my trip earlier in the Autumn to the Canadian Rockies, this is Cathedral Mountain from the Yoho Valley Road in Yoho National Park.

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.

I had always wanted to see the Larch Valley in Banff National Park in its golden splendor. Although I had been to the Larch Valley previously, it was in August and you don’t realize what you’re missing in the Autumn. I’m glad I went as it would be among my best ever visits to the Canadian Rockies. Amazing and beautiful! And crowded too!

Whenever you visit the Canadian Rockies at the end of September, you could have early Winter conditions or warm, Spring-like days. There was snow and cold the week before our visit but we was lucky to arrive to sunny skies. The Moraine Lake parking lot was full early so we had to take the shuttle from the Lake Louise overflow campground along the Trans Canada Highway. Make sure you give yourself time as there may be a wait for the shuttle both ways.

We’ll start here, on the edge of Moraine Lake facing the Tower of Babel.

October was highlighted by my visit to the Canadian Rockies. It was perfect timing because I was finally able to see the golden larches in the Larch Valley sparkling under the Autumn sun. You’ll see many photos from the Rockies trip here as well as more Autumn colours. Let’s get to it now. This is a selection of my photos posted to social media in October.

Originally, there was a snowstorm in the forecast but it turned out to be a fine day at Yoho National Park, Canada. This is Wapta Peak on the left from the shores of Emerald Lake.

Scenes of Summer. Scenes of Spring. I even have a rare appearance by me in a photo from my Sunday hike to Joffre Lakes Provincial Park, north of Whistler, Canada. Now that was a long drive from my home in Vancouver, but well-worth-it. These are my photos posted to social media for the last full week of August, 2015!
