Capilano Suspension Bridge
We went to see (and hike) the Capilano Suspension Bridge in North Vancouver, B.C. the other day. The bridge was constructed in the early 1900's and is still "hanging" in there today. We went in the morning when the crowds were still eating breakfast somewhere and we were able to walk around and enjoy the area without any lines. The bridge crosses the river below and leads us into a temperate rain forest lush with greenery.
Elevated boardwalks led us through the forest. There were small plaques along the way telling about the flora and fauna found in this special place.
On one side of the bridge is a granite rock wall that has an arched walkway engineered into the rock wall that allows people to walk over the forest as if suspended on air. This is the Cliffwalk.
The beauty of nature abounds.....and so do these little guys.
