High time I showcase a beautiful locale in my own country.
The Capilano Suspension Bridge in Vancouver, Canada is 450 long and over 200 feet off the ground. It was originally built in 1889, by using hemp rope and planks. (Now it’s made of wire cable and 120-ton actors, thank god.) You can walk with the squirrels at tree-top height, or scale the mountains in the newly opened Cliff Walk. Here’s a description:
Open June 3, 2011, this heart-stopping cliffside journey takes you through rainforest vegetation on a series of unobtrusive cantilevered and suspended walkways jutting out from the granite cliff face above Capilano River to previously unexplored areas of the park. Not for the faint of heart, it is high and narrow and, in some sections, glass (very strong glass) is all that separates guests from the canyon far below.
So if beaches and tropical getaways aren’t your thing, try tree-walking in Canada–and bring your camera.
