Before I was a mother I was not aware that I had a
But here's the news! On my last trip to Vancouver I had a personal preview tour of the newest attraction at Capilano Suspension Bridge and I (very) bravely walked the entire thing. (okay, I had to be laughingly shamed into it but I did it!) Jonathon took a few minutes out of his busy work day at The Bridge to show me the sights and it was amazing.
Cliffwalk opens tomorrow to the public and the promo is absolutely right that it is a "heart-stopping cliffside journey". Built into (onto...out of..?) the granite cliff face above the Capilano River as it runs through the park, Cliffwalk is a series of very cool and cooly engineered walkways. It is very high and very narrow and in some spots made of thick glass (and yes, I did walk on it ... very scary! but I am so brave) and totally breathtaking and beautiful.
The salmon are actually concrete sculptures. I thought they were so beautiful - wish I had one or two to swim in my garden.
The views from the 'walk' are incredible and opportunities to be educated about the rainforest abound. I am so glad I gathered my courage. One more reason to love Vancouver!
These two shots are from the official promo material and show Cliffwalk from an angle that I couldn't/wouldn't. That's Jonathon mugging for the camera in the red jacket! Ha!
