Canada: Day 2 Capilano Suspension Bridge

Capilano Suspension Bridge is definitely a tourist trap. It is expensive to get in and is very commercialized. I mean, people-walking-around-wearing-historical-costumes-and-singing-songs commercialized. There are some nice developments, like the Treetop Walking exhibit, which is gratifying for those of us who never had tree houses as little kids.

Upon entering the park, there is a very long and very high up suspension bridge, the kind that sways from side to side when the wind blows (or when your dad walks behind you so he can shake it for his own amusement - so not funny) so it can be frightening for those with fear of heights.

The view from the Suspension Bridge is amazing.

One of the exhibits in the park.

There are several ponds within the park (with lots of fishies).

An act of vandalism - the boards are covered with all sorts of messages.

Oh, and they give you little maps that you stamp at every exhibit so you can get a prize - if you're over the age of 10, this is not for you. Trust me - you will be sorely disappointed.
