Tulips, Mountains, a Parrot Finch and More, Photos of the Week, October 3rd to 9th

October 13, 2015 — 2 Comments

My website was hacked this past week and it was not a good feeling. I apologize to those of you who tried to access Camino My Way while it was down. To the person from Moscow, Russia who hacked my website, please take your talents and do some good in this World. Now, let’s move on and please join me on my photos of the week posted to social media.


I visited these tulips at VanDusen Botanical Garden in Vancouver many times this past Spring. Loved the bright colours!

The gardens outside the Chateau Lake Louise in Banff National Park were beautiful when I visited in the Summer. Along with the lake, mountains, and glaciers, the views with flowers were incredible!

I’m not sure which tulip this is but I thought it was rather pretty… delicate and unique too! Earlier this year, somewhere in Vancouver!

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.
