Week #8 winner:

Congratulations to Robin Richter from Ottawa, ON, for submitting the winning photo. Your reward? A Parks Canada family Discovery Pass.

Thank you to everyone who submitted their spectacular photos. This week we chose Robin Richter's snap taken on a hike through Auyuittuq National Park in Nunavut because we love the close-up of the "miniature world" identified on the trails winding through this national park's mountains.

All new photos pinned as of Friday August 23, 2013, are eligible for next week's reward of a Parks Canada family Discovery Pass.
