    Capilano Suspension Bridge

    August 12, 2019 in Canada ⋅ ☁️ 19 °C

    There has been a suspension bridge here since 1889. The current bridge was built in 1956.
    Design: Simple Suspension for pedestrians only
    Total length: 140 metres (460 ft)
    Height: 70 metres (230 ft) above the Capilano River
    It sways and rocks as you walk across, very unnerving. Not for those who hate heights.

    Capilano Suspension Bridge

    August 25, 2019 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Diese beeindruckende Hängeseilbrücke überspannt mit ca. 137 m die darunterliegende Schlucht seit 1889 zuverlässig. Der Eintritt in den Park ist mit umgerechnet 50CHF recht teuer, es gibt jedoch einige, aufwändig gestaltete Attraktionen zu sehen, welche von einem, sagen wir mal recht zahlreichen Publikum besucht wird. Mir mangelte es jedenfalls nicht an Gesellschaft. Vor der Rückfahrt gönne ich mir noch einen Burger vom Grill und mein Budget für Heute ist ausgeschöpft.Read more

    Cool Temperate Rainforest Walk

    August 12, 2019 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Temperate rainforests are at latitudes between the two Tropics and Polar Circles. What they have in common is a lot of rain, which causes the lush rainforest canopies to flourish.
    Close to 25% of the world’s temperate rainforest is in BC. Most of it is coastal.
    Temperate rainforests decompose slowly, resulting in a rich vegetation base (including a variety of mushrooms) but few tree varieties (mostly coniferous), due to the climate and low light levels.

    Here, a series of elevated walkways lead us through the rainforest.

    Capilano Suspension Bridge & Football

    October 18, 2019 in Canada ⋅ 🌧 9 °C

    The Capilano Suspension Bridge was amazing! At this time of year they have lots of lights all around the trees and it just looks stunning! I was actually surprised when we arrived because I thought it would have been a bit further out of the city.

    After the bridge, we headed to BC Place for a BC Lions football game - Canadian football 😳 I had absolutely no idea what was going on for the whole game but it was a fun atmosphere so we enjoyed it nevertheless!
